1. To illustrate how dreams may be of diagnostic clinical value in the recognition of repetitive patterns of internal defenses in trauma and dissociation;2. To provide an understanding of the temporal relevance of dreams, and how they may ‘pierce the veil’ of trauma-induced, dissociative states, bringing about moments of re-membering, through Nachträglichkeit;3. To demonstrate how dreams, as primary processes, and dream work, may bring into being emergent, primal—yet life-giving—affects that may ‘loosen’ the hold of so-called, ‘death drive’ defenses maintained in traumatic, borderline states;
4. To illustrate how the unconscious dynamics of projective identification (dreaming) in the analytic field facilitates mutual awareness of inter-generational trauma.Fees: $60.00 for Alliance Members and $75 for Non-membersClass Size: Limited to 15 participants.
