Description: Although all contemporary psychoanalytic approaches to dreaming in the clinical situation follow Freud’s work on the unconscious mind and unconscious communication, it is generally assumed today that there are several different dream models in use among clinicians. IPISLC’s seminar, Contemporary Dream Theory and Technique, will present a survey of the major dream models developed by Freud and by the theorists who came after him, including Wilfred Bion, Thomas Ogden, Antonio Ferro, and Giuseppe Civitarese. All of these writers have developed the idea, first advanced by Bion, that the therapy session is a form of a “waking dream” in which ordinary therapeutic conversation can be profitably regarded as an intersubjective dream constructed between therapist and patient (Ogden’s concept of “talking as dreaming” is an example of this approach).

The dream models of these theorists facilitate a clinical process that provides a “path to dreaming” for the many patients who do not dream, or who suffer from nightmares, or who are frightened or skeptical of, rather than interested in, the processes and products of their unconscious minds.

The seminar will include a clinical dream vignette workshop in which participants will work together, as a group, not only toward understanding and working with patients’ daydreams and night dreams, nightmares and “talking as dreaming,” but also toward developing the therapist’s  own capacity for dreaming with the patient in the session.
