Conversation : Daydreams: Concealed and Revealed in Therapy

Everybody daydreams. Daydreams revealed
in therapy, however, can be understood as valuable information to understand a patient¹s personality including character traits, symptoms, and distress. Daydreams are different from nocturnal dreams. One of the most important aspects of daydreams is that daydreams are often concealed in therapy. As a result, daydreams may be missed by the therapist as a way of understanding unconscious material. This conversation will elicit a discussion of daydreams in psychotherapy.

Course Objectives:
Participants in this course will learn the following skills:
1. Participants will be able to distinguish the difference between daydreams and nocturnal dreams.
2. Participants will be able to distinguish between the adaptive and maladaptive
function of daydreaming.
3. Participants will be able identify three different forms of daydreams.
