The dreaming mind presents a vast range of experiences that cannot be reduced to a simple theory or a method. Such complexity of the mind presents a challenge within therapeutic sessions.
This Web Conference will explore the architecture of sleep and the different types of dream experience ranging from normative/ordinary to extraordinary dreams. Dr. Bogzaran will also discuss the more common assumptions behind dream interpretation.
Dr. Bogzaran will present ways to approach dreams from a creative and holistic view called Integral Dream Practice (IDP). Using principles of IDP, participants will have an opportunity to learn how to approach dreams within the proper context of their own therapeutic practice.
This Web Conference is designed to help clinicians:
1) Identify different types of dreams and how to approach them;
2) Examine the philosophy of dream practice, the common assumptions about dream interpretation, and the ethics of dreamwork;
3) Explore different modalities to approach dreams;
4) Apply creative methodologies to one dream to gain insight.
