Workshop: Dreams. Faciliated by Kim Lee Own

We can learn a great deal about ourselves and become more self-aware from our dreams. Dreams are considered to be one of the key methods to gaining an understanding of the patterns within our lives (how we function in our own world) and reflects our hopes, fears and how we view the world. So what we dream about is a reflection of what we are holding within our unconscious mind.

Mosak and Maniacci, (1999), state that “We generally create dreams in order to reinforce our movement in life, to rehearse future courses of actions, to problem solve and to create a mood for the next day.” All this while we sleep!

During this workshop, we will discuss

  • How to understand and work with dreams and how dreams are working with us! There will be opportunities to work with your dreams during the day, so if you would like to look at your dreams, start writing down your dreams now and bring them with you.
  • How dreams help us to Problem Solve
  • How dreams help us to create movement in our lives
  • How dreams help us to rehearse future courses of actions that we may need to take.
  • How dreams reflect our current way of living and view of the world.
  • How dreams can set our mood for the day! 

We will consider how Adlerians view interpretation and the meaning of symbols in dreams. This workshop will be suitable for those who are interested in learning more about their dreams. It will provide an opportunity to look at an important aspect of working in an Adlerian way to understand ourselves and clients.
