November 12, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Presented by Robert Moradi, M.D.
For Clinicians Only/Sold Out
Nightmares are often some of our most important dreams. In this talk, videotapes will be utilized to demonstrate the significance of nightmares, and suggest ways of helping patients work with these types of dreams. We will examine how to approach the dream or nightmare by first attending to the context of the dreamer’s life, and how to best support and work with dream images, allowing them to unfold in an organic way. Asking the patient for associations, and the use of dream amplification will be demonstrated and discussed, with the goal of helping clinician become more comfortable with including nightmares and dreams in their work with patients.
