Sample text

The dreams and nightmares Victoria described over this two-year period of therapy illustrate much of what we can learn from dreams both about ourselves as individuals and as members of social groups. At times, we use the same dream to explain several points because dreams can communicate a multitude of messages and feelings. We begin with an examination of what we call the emotional reality of the dream, that is, the dream reflects how the client is feeling and has felt for some time. Dreams as Depictions of Emotional Reality Dreams reflect the emotional reality of the dreamer and therein offer a specific opportunity to learn about ourselves and each other.

As this was new territory (to my knowledge, no one had ever taught a course like this), I felt that I had to get a sense of the territory before I could determine which direction I wanted to go. A few days before starting to teach, I did, however, begin to panic at my lack of preparation. Trying to comfort me, an experienced teacher friend Page 8 reassured me by saying that I had been preparing all my life for teaching this coursewhich was true, I guessbut undoubtedly more teaching experience would have helped.

In general, people who would never describe personal feelings are often quite comfortable describing a dream and this was true of Victoria. Thus, Victoria was not only able to experience profound grief in her dreams but felt comfortable sharing these dreams with her therapist. In addition, material that is too painful too recall during waking often first emerges in dreams, and this was certainly Victoria's experience. An advantage of dreams in this respect is that they can be dismissed as "just a dream" if the dreamer is not ready to accept the reality of the experience.
