For those interested in dreams and therapy, the California School of Professional Psychology offers programming to provide the helping professional with new techniques and perspectives in the management of his/her client-base. Alameda, California Campus, 1005 Atlantic Ave.800-298-0317

In this new certificate, the participants learn about the use of dreamwork in psychotherapeutic practice. Why dreamwork? Several reasons - first, few therapists receive formal training in working with dreams; second, skills in this area enhance assessment, diagnosis and treatment- related skills already possessed by practicing clinicians. In a clinical context where much work has already been accomplished at an accelerated rate, the dream as an assessment tool can provide a snapshot of the emotional soul and even physical health rounding out the clinical interview. Future courses will explore higher level topics such as the use of dreamwork with couples, groups, and the community-at-large; the role of trance in dreamwork; medical dreamwork; and special topics in the area of dream and self research.
