About the event

DREAMWORK

a Gestalt Art Therapy approach

Dreams can be a source of personal insight.

As there is experimental support for the hypothesis that sleep facilitates cognitive insight and creative thinking (Maquet and Ruby, 2004; Stickgold and Walker, 2004; Wagner et al., 2004; Darsaud et al., 2011), it is plausible that sleep could allow personal/affective insight, and that this might be reflected in dream content, given the interaction between characters, and emotional content, in most dreams (Nielsen and Lara-Carrasco, 2007).

Whether it is in a traditional or modern context, dreams have a special place in both psychology and psychotherapy studies. For example, ‘The Traditional Interpretive Dream Approach’ model, which we came across as its first remains in Mesopotamia and is also the inspiration for psychoanalysis, is based on the interpretation of the symbols in the dream with the principle of reaching the hidden meaning. However, what is done with this interpretation is to move away from the phenomenal subjective reality of the client.

Dreams are also a way of experiencing just like the waking experiences and a phenomenal self has its place in the center of these experiences as it has in the waking ones.

Dreams have hidden meanings beyond words, and these meanings are covered by symbols. The symbols in the dream must be interpreted to achieve the implicit meaning of the dream. (Hayrettin Kara)

" The dreams are the symbolic narration of an unconscious reality"

Dreams are studied through Psychology and neuroscience, memory processes during REM sleep. The existing neuroscientific evidence suggests that we are almost certainly capable of learning during dreams and that learning may therefore be one of dreams’ primary adaptive functions. (Isaac Roberts)

· During this online workshop participants will understand how to work with their dreams, in a Gestalt Art Therapy approach.

· Using creativity, expressive creations, and imagination, participants will connect with their dream projections.
