Although there are still few neuroscientists who will claim that dream imagery is random and without meaning, there are now well-designed studies that demonstrate the usefulness of dreams in psychotherapy and the correspondence between dream life and waking life, including issues that need resolution.
This presentation will survey contemporary dream research and will provide instruction for participants' own dream-working activities.
