"Dr. Schoenewolf draws on his vast experience with patients, illustrating with great clarity how clinicians can work with dreams. In the current therapeutic climate of managed care and swift achievement of behavioral goals, Schoenewolf's encyclopedic volume reminds us of the importance of the dream as royal road to the unconscious." —Jeffrey Seinfeld, Ph.D.

Editorial Reviews

Richard C. Robertiello
A truly exhaustive explanation of the meaning of dream symbols and their interpretation, this book will enlighten even experienced analysts who fail to make use of the rich material dreams furnish.
David C. Belgray
At last! A dictionary of dream interpretation that contains actual dream specimens from abandonment to zoophilia with psychoanalytic interpretations. Each dream indicates the dreamer's background, the dreamer's association, and one or more interpretations. Dr. Schoenewolf's extensive research provides us with a number of indices: dreams by famous people (Hitler, Marilyn Monroe), dreams from psychotherapeutic literature (Freud's Wolf Man, Socarides's Masochist), and myths and fairy tales; another index links the dreams with personality and physical characteristics, and there is a glossary for quick reference to the meaning of dream symbols. This book warrants use in dream courses and belongs on every professional's reference shelf.
