About this event

This one day workshop will include: the theoretical and cross cultural origins of therapeutic dream work, the central effect of dissociation in trauma and the integrative role that dreams, nightmares and dream work offers. It will explore the cross cultural value in working with dreams and dream work and offer a psychological framework to understand the way the psyche uses image to promote inner healing. The cautions for dream work and the establishment of a safe therapeutic window will also be addressed.

The workshop is intended for social workers, psychologists and counsellors who would like to develop an understanding of the use of dream work in their work with those recovering from trauma and cultural dislocation. The workshop will cover theory and practice with many opportunities for experiential practice.
