Dreaming has been central to psychoanalytic work from the very beginning with Freud analyzing his own dreams.  But the actual experience of listening to a patient's dreams, or listening to our own dreams, can be unnerving, casting us into a strange and mysterious world of shifting meanings.  Donald Meltzer, writing in the British Object Relations tradition, sees the dream as coming from the most developed part of our minds.  In dreams we are given a glimpse into the inner workings of the mind as it creates meaning out of our experience and strives to solve pressing psychic problems.  In this seminar we will read selections from Meltzer's book, "Dream Life", and listen to the dreams of our patients and ourselves to explore together the emotional territory of dreaming. 

Instructor: Terry Hanson has been very involved in the Alliance and COR from their beginnings. He especially has enjoyed the process of learning together in small groups. He has his private practice in Seattle.
