"Dream Analysis 101:
Helping Your Clients To A Life Of Depth And Meaning
Through Understanding Their Dreams"
A lecture by Dan Keusal, M.S., LMFT.
Friday morning, September 15, 2017
At the monthly meeting of
The Seattle Counselors Association
The dreams our clients have at night show us the intentions of their own unique psyche, their deepest, wisest, best selves. Dreams open up a door to the unconscious, to spirit, to the gods and goddesses within. Dreams reveal what the waking ego is missing, offer clues about the places in life where our clients feel stuck, and show how they can best move forward. But the language of dreams is not the language of our everyday, waking life. It is the language of symbol and metaphor, a language we need help to understand in a world that focuses almost exclusively on literal approaches—to therapy, and to life. This lecture will explore how to remember dreams, how to understand the important messages they bring, and how to turn those messages into life-giving actions that will infuse the lives of our clients with depth and meaning.
