Event Description

The Power of Dreams in Groups

Saturday December 1,   1:30-5:30pm  




4 CEUs for Psychologists, MFTs, MSWs, LCSWs   $100

MCEP approval #SAB009-108


            This program is for those wishing to have more facility in working with dreams in groups. Specific methods for inviting dreams into groups and exploring them will be covered. The value of dreams for understanding the psychodynamics of both the dreamer and the group will be emphasized.

Participants may bring in dreams for exploration; sample dreams provided by the instructors for participants to work with will make this program a living laboratory.

            The “dream group” will also be introduced as a unique modality suitable for general and target populations. The format, processes, and goals of the therapy group and the dream group will be compared and contrasted. The instructors, specialists in dream work, will talk about their experience

as both leaders and members of therapy and dream groups. The goal of this program is to show how the range and depth of professional services can be expanded by including dreams in any type of group.


Those attending will learn about:

• inviting dreams into any group setting             • making use of your own dreams about the group

• unpacking dreams in innovative ways               • using dream groups for target populations

• linking dream content to indiv. & group issues  • reasons groups resist engaging with dreams
