In Dream Work in Therapy: Facilitating Exploration, Insight, and Action, distinguished researchers and clinicians explore Clara E. Hill's cognitive-experiential model for working with dreams. This book discusses the theoretical basis of the model and provides clear instructions for implementing it in practice. Through the use of valuable clinical examples, chapter authors present extensions of the model in specific settings and populations, such as groups, men, the bereaved, and nightmare sufferers. Of particular interest to readers will be the last part of the book, which describes how to train therapists to use the model and provides a detailed review of the model's empirical research. This approach offers therapists and their clients a structured but flexible method for maximizing the therapeutic benefits of working with dreams.

This book discusses dream work through the lens of art therapy theory. It is written in a personal voice from a perspective of discovery and curiosity toward the unknown. This territory is metaphorically explored in relationship to geography and landscape. It provides a structural foundation for dreamwork within a relational art therapy approach based on phenomenological and existential world views. Approaches to dreamwork include psychoanalytic theory, depth psychology, gestalt theory and phenomenology. Poetry, theory, and praxis are interwoven, demonstrating the process for creatively exploring dreams and artwork. Dreamer and artist are respected in the journey discovering new horizons and footpaths that might be revealed and encouraged to make and remake their own maps along the way. The intention of this writing is to bring a felt sense of an integrated way of exploring dreams honouring the courage it takes to explore the dream’s terrain.

Expanded from a special issue of the Journal of Cognitive Psychotherapy, this volume contains some of the most interesting and promising work on dreams coming from therapists and researchers working at the crossroads of cognitive therapy and other systemsófrom a reprint of Beck's only article on cognition and dreams to the influence of modern neurobiology on the use of dreams in cognitive therapy. These chapters provide a meta-theory of drams that is unique to the cognitive perspective. As such, they begin the process of generating a comprehensive cognitive model of dream work that includes cognitive, affective, physical and behavioral features from which future research and clinical innovations can be built.

Dream work claims that our dreams powerfully reflect or influence spiritual, psychological, and even physical realities. Dreams can be explored for psychological insight in psychotherapy; for spiritual insight in "Christian" dream work; or manipulated for occult revelations or "spiritual growth". Dream work may also be used as an adjunct to physical healing. The authors expose the occult potential and examine the major problems and dangers, as well as give a biblical evaluation.

This voluminous book of 47 chapters offers a good cross section of what is burgeoing in the field of client-centered and experiential psychotherapy on the threshold of the nineties. it does not represent a single vision but gives the floor to the various suborientations: classics Rogerians; client-centered therapists who favor some form of integration or even eclecticism; experiential psychotherapists for whom Gendlin's focusing approach is a precious way of working; client-centered therapists who look at the therapy process in terms of information-processing; existentially oriented therapists... Remarkable is that - for the first time in the history of client-centered/experiential psychotherapy - the European voice rings through forcefully: more than half of the contributions were written by authors from Western Europe.Several chapters contain reflections on the evolution—past, present, and future—of client-centered/experiential psychotherapy. The intensive research into the process, which had a central place in the initial phase of client-centered therapy, is given here ample attention, with several creative studies and proposals for renewal. In numerous contributions efforts are made to build and further develop a theroy of psychopathology, the client's process, the basic attitudes and task-oriented interventions of the therapist. The chapters dealing with clinical practice typically aim at the description of therapy with specific client populations and paricularly severely disturbed clients. And finally a few fields are introduced which are new or barely explored within the client-centered/experiential approach: working with dreams, health psychology, couple and family therapy.

How to dream your way to health and happiness. Dreams can have a powerful effect on our waking life - we've all woken happy and refreshed from a particularly pleasing dream, or scared and sad because of a vivid nightmare. In this practical how-to guide, Dr Clare Johnson shows how we can learn from and guide our dreams in order to lead healthier, happier, more mindful and fulfilling lives. She takes us step-by step through understanding the language of dreams, waking up in our dreams, and finally transforming our dreams to improve our waking life. Each chapter is packed with helpful tips, cutting-edge scientific findings, and fascinating examples of how people have used their dreams to improve their lives and increase mindfulness. This includes a woman who quit smoking after seeing a 'black lung x-ray' in a dream; a young offender who changed his ways after he dreamed of feeling safe and loved; and a woman who confronted her fear of death in a lucid dream and overcame it.
