Josh Levy, Ph.D.
Understanding and comparing dreams from multiple perspectives in analytic treatments
In this workshop we will examine and compare how an Ego Psychologist, a Kleinian, a Self Psychologist and a Relational Analyst, conceptualize and work with dreams in their clinical analysis. Furthermore, by comparing their clinical work, we can learn the multiple functions of dreams during the treatments of our patients.

Discussing how each analytic perspective conceptualize and work with dreams.

Afternoon Session:
Learning a method of how to compare the work with dreams from different perspectives.

Learning Objectives

To learn how the divergent analytic perspectives work with their patients dream;
Learn to compare between them;
To raise questions whether the comparisons would be of benefit to your own practice
