Witti, in my therapy (regular interpersonal) dreams are sometimes quite pivotal. Though we do not discuss them that often, my therapist really perks up when presented a dream.

Many of my dreams are a kind of purgatorial montage of childhood blah-blah. When we work one, I am everything in my dream. (I guess that's a standard given.) To even disengage enough to see the imagery as myself and not other is work enough that begins an unraveling process that is fruitful over time.

My pdoc/therapist is a 60/70's hybrid. Analysis, Gestalt, other approaches I recognize but can't name. It leavens the dream work, his multi-pronged approach.

Having *the dream* to discuss helps because I can, at least at the start, discuss the dream like a book. I like the authorial loophole that I am not what I write :)


MDD currently controlled. C-ptsd and comorbid health concerns. Chronic fatigue.
