This book looks at dreams from a twenty-first century perspective.
It takes its inspiration from Freud's insights, but pursues
psychoanalytic interest into both neuroscience and the modern
psychoanalytic consulting room. The book looks at laboratory
research on dreaming alongside the modern clinical use of dreams
and links together clinical and empirical research, integrating
classical ideas with the plurality of psychoanalytic theoretical
constructs available to modern researchers.Psychoanalysts writing
about dreams have traditionally represented the cutting edge of
clinical and theoretical development, and this book is no
exception. Many of the contributions, as well as the
epistemological position taken by the writers, represent a kind of
radical openness to new ways of thinking about the clinical
situation and about theory. In line with the ambition of the
editors, this volume represents an integration of theories and
disciplines, and a scientific context for modern psychoanalysis.The
link between clinical research and extraclinical research via the
royal road of dreaming is a theme that runs through all the
contributions. These cover dreaming as it sheds light on clinical
conditions such as depression and trauma, or dreams as they form a
core aspect of clinical work; be that as a co-construction, or as
shared play between therapist and patients. The book provides
insight through dreams to understanding mental functions in all
clinical situations and across all conditions.
