The Multiple Functions of Dreams in Clinical Work - April 27 - May 25, 2006John Gilkey, M.D.
Training and Supervising Analyst, Michigan Psychoanalytic Institute
Dreams have long been recognized as an important aspect of mentalizing. Although no longer imbued with magical attributes, the analysis and understanding of dreams remains one of the special therapeutic procedures of psychodynamic treatments. This seminar will explore multiple ways dreams are utilized by patients and therapists, including their place in enactments, the elaboration of unconscious fantasy, restructuralization and the development of insight. Participants will be welcomed to bring clinical vignettes from their own work to augment the clinical material.
Thursdays, 7:30-9:00 P.M.
5 Sessions: April 27; May 4, 11, 18, 25
