Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Edward A. Wolpert, MD, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: Dr. Conigliaro discusses the process of dreaming, dream formation, and dream interpretation in both psychodynamic and physiologic terms. He then presents a multitude of clinical examples to demonstrate dream interpretation in psychotherapeutic situations.
Purpose: The purpose of the book is twofold: to summarize and elaborate on Freud's view of dreaming; and to demonstrate the use of dream interpretation with patients. These objectives are well met; the book is a treasure-trove of clinical examples.
Audience: The book is meant for mental health workers of all disciplines who are interested in the dynamics of their patients and of the clinical situation.
Features: The explication of numerous dreams, and the inter-relationship between treatment and dream interpretation is magnificently presented.
Assessment: A most useful book, filling a need that has been apparent for years.
