Next Professional Training: Sep 26 & 27, 2015
Dream Lab Professional Training
This professional training is an experiential series, grounded in theory, where you’ll learn how to approach your clients’ dreams with skill and sensitivity. Professionals will learn valuable techniques for gaining therapeutic insight from their clients’ dreams. You’ll be supervised working on real dreams, and receive feedback on your personal style and accuracy.
Your Clients’ Dreams Are Invaluable to Therapy
During the course of therapy, your clients have revealing and informative dreams that can be groundbreaking for your work together.
Dreams are among the most therapeutically useful, and least understood resource in the mental health field. They deliver time sensitive observations from the edges of conscious awareness, and make visible those elusive, buried connections between present and past events.
Typically, a client wants to discuss one aspect of their lives, while their dreams desperately point to another. Consistently, dreams highlight our incongruity, our blind spots and our denials; they point to blockages to therapy.
Why Should Therapists Pay Attention to Their Client’s dreams?
Because dreams share your therapeutic goals, and have access to the memories and emotional connections that are the foundation of therapeutic progress.
“The [Professional] Dream Training Day was amazing… The best part of the day was the way you facilitated each participant to be able to help others during the workshop and then integrating it into our own practice. Thank you Ilana for the very important dream work that you are doing in helping professionals help their clients.”
“As a therapist and on a personal level my recent 2 day participation into understanding dreams has opened up a wonderful world for self discovery and a new direction for working with my own clients… Dreams were opened up revealing such powerful and at times subtle meanings. I was left with a profound wish and commitment to explore this area of my life… ~ Tony
