Description - Dream Sociometry by Joseph Dillard

This unique book is the first of two volumes that describe a new, transpersonal model for therapeutic work on dreams. Dream Sociometry, a form of Integral Deep Listening (IDL) life drama and dream character interviewing, contributes to the fields of application of the sociometric methods of J.L. Moreno and the use of sociometry in therapy, to support and direct personal development. The book describes an experiential, multi-perspectival integral life practice through accessing "emerging potentials," or perspectives that integrate, transcend, and include one's current context and predicament.

Dream Sociometry provides a thoroughly phenomenological approach, suspending interpretation as well as assumptions about the reality and usefulness of synchronicities, mystical experiences, waking accidents, dreams, and nightmares, in favour of listening to dream characters and personifications of important life issues in a respectful and integral way. It thereby provides an important doorway to both causal and non-dual awareness by accessing perspectives that personify both, and will open doors for those interested not only in dream research, but in reducing anxiety disorders, such as phobias and post-traumatic stress disorders, and seeing through the often literal and concrete interpretations that we often give both physical and mental illness as well as mystical experiences.

Offering a fresh and unique approach to both dreamwork and self-development through sociometric methodologies, this book will be of interest to researchers in the fields of psychodrama, sociometry, group psychotherapy, transpersonal, experiential and action therapies, as well as postgraduate students studying psychology and sociology.
