Presented by: Ronald Jalbert, Ph.D. and
Thomas B. Janoski, Ph.D.

This presentation will first focus on the nature of dreams and then address specifically their potential clinical uses.  The broad outlines of two major analytic models, Freudian and Jungian, will be reviewed to explore the deeper sense or significance  (deutung) of dreams (Traume).  

Freud's understanding of dreams, as a cornerstone of psychoanalytic technique, will be examined in an effort to highlight ways to work with dreams in contemporary practice.  
Concepts to be explored include wish fulfillment in dreams, condensation, displacement, symbolization, day residue, manifest and latent contents, and over-determination, among others.

Jung's distinctive approach to dreams will then be presented as a model different from Freuds in interesting and important ways.  Areas to be examined are the ideas of complexes as architects of dreams, the role of compensation, the nature of the symbol, the role of the Self in dream life, and dreams in transference and countertransference.    

The assumption we operate from is that both models, Freudian and Jungian, have value in clinical work since both, in albeit different ways, capture various aspects of the richness and depth of dream experience and together articulate the potential for a more profound understanding of the enigmas of dream phenomena.

At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to:
1. Contrast and compare at least three features of Freud's and Jung's understanding of dreams.
2. Give examples from their own practice illustrating the practical application of dreamwork in the clinical setting.
