Mindfulness and Dreams: A New Approach and Interpretational Benefits

Dreams are integral parts of daily life that have long fascinated humanity, but they can also be a source of great suffering when associated with emotional disorders. Despite existing theories of dreams, therapists who attempt to offer interpretations tend to over-rely on theoretical assumptions, which seldom translate into tangible benefits during clinical interventions. Based on observations made during mindfulness practice and the co-emergence model of reinforcement, Dr Bruno Cayoun will discuss the advantages of adopting a new way of conceptualising, understanding and interpreting common dreams during clinical practice.

Participants will learn about:

  • Current dream theories
  • The co-emergence model of reinforcement and its relevance to dream experiences
  • Co-emergence interpretation of dreams in clinical practice
  • Information on the opportunities for training

Session time: 3pm – 4pm (AEDT)
Session date: Sunday 7th October 2018
