Dream exploration and interpretation have been a central tenet of the psychoanalytic tradition since Freud’s seminal work, The Interpretation of Dreams, published in 1899.  In this salon, we will consider Freud’s formative influence on the role dreams play in psychoanalysis; we will also explore in depth the work of contemporary analyst Montague Ullman.  Using Ullman’s techniques, we will gain greater insight and appreciation for the symbols and meanings that manifest in dreams, as well as learn techniques for working with cour client’s dreams in the clinical setting.  Please join us for what promises to be an evocative and stimulating salon, as we journey down the royal road to the unconscious.   

Learning Objectives:

1) Understand the history of dream work in contemporary psychoanalysis via readings of Freud, Blechner, Ullman and others

2) Gain greater insight and curiosity into the symbolic nature of their own dreams and its personal and clinical implications

3) Attendees will learn to utilize dream interpretation in clinical practice
