Psychology of Dreams

Spring 2022

Taught By: Patricia Simko

Section: A

CRN: 10815

Credits: 3

Dreams are our subconscious attempt to reconcile our inner and outer worlds. Dreams are triggered by many needs--to resolve a problem, to gratify a wish, to relive an event, to give expression to suppressed emotions. What all dreams have in common is the depth of their message, for dreams come from the most profound part of the self. In dreaming, we explore that mysterious place; we evolve and become. The class studies the history of dream theory, with a focus on psychoanalytic theories of dream formation and analysis (Freud, Jung, Erikson, Kohut, etc.). We also explore the creative expression of the self through dream interpretation and work together on understanding ourselves and growing through our dreams.
