Description - Counselling with Dreams and Nightmares by Delia Joyce Cushway
This practical guide makes clear that dreams are not the prerogative of psychoanalysts. It provides counsellors with a model and techniques for working with their clients' dreams and nightmares. Using case examples throughout, the authors demonstrate that dreamwork can prove a fruitful therapeutic tool, when used with sensitivity. The emphasis is on the fact that dreams are the creation of, and belong to, the dreamer, and that they offer a powerful means of access to an indvidual's emotional and creative life. Chapters describe objective methods of understanding and interpreting dream language and symbols, and vivid subjective methods by which cleints can be encouraged to experience the emotional content of the dream in the counselling session. Different types of nightmare are defined and separate guidelines are outlined for working with and alleviating nightmare distress. Guidance is also given on the causes of, and how to deal with, other sleeping difficulties such as somnambulism.
