In Working With Dreams, Dr. Phyllis R. Koch-Sheras demonstrates her powerful approach to working with clients' dreams. Dreams frequently come up for discussion in the course of therapy, and the insights clients might gain from dreams can help the therapeutic process.
In this self-directed approach, Dr. Koch-Sheras teaches clients to use a special technique called "dream language" to describe their dreams, which emphasizes the client's own creation of the dream. By translating the dream language and role-playing aspects of the dream, clients gain insight that may reflect on their lives. Dr. Koch-Sheras helps the client to translate her dream and obtain some lessons from the dream, including ways to apply these lessons during her waking life.
