    Dreams and Relations: Dreamtelling as a request for containment and influence

    Speaker and convenor: Robi Friedman

    Respondent: John Schlapobersky

    Dreams told in a therapeutic setting are challenging, fantastically rich in content and often overwhelming in their implications for peoples' relationships. Robi Friedman is pioneering an approach to dreamtelling in group analysis through workshops and publications that have created an international platform. Learning to work with dreams in groups can enrich the understanding of intrapsychic, interpersonal and transpersonal process and enhance the group’s therapeutic culture and working relationships.

    This one-day workshop opens with a Lecture ‘Dreamtelling and Three uses of Dreams’, followed with a Response and then provides live demonstrations - learning in a fishbowl in two parts- and small group workshops.  

    Lunch is provided on site.
