Groups are held weekly on a set night during the week, presently from 5:45-7:00 PM on Tuesdays. The format for group varies from week to week, but generally within the cohort participants may find elements of psychodrama, creative writing and art exercises, creative imagery, and work with nightmares and recurrent dreams. For current fee and sign-up information, please contact Randal_Lea@yahoo.com with subject line: Dreamtending.
DreamTending Seminar: Recovery through Dreamwork
This didactic session explores briefly dream interpretation history, established and emerging methods of dreamwork, exploration of myths and beliefs about dreams, and examples of group exercises. Though originally piloted with an alcohol and drug population, these exercises may be used in any counseling setting where clients appear on long term basis. Workshop designed for experienced therapists or for those who have keen interest in the topic. A key element in this exercise addresses the value of working with dreams in therapy and the opportunities missed when therapists have minimal or no interest in dream exploration.
Time of presentation: 2-4 hours Based on setting and conference needs.
