Dreams, A Portal to the Source

Whitmont, Edward C., and Perera, Sylvia Brinton

 This is a practical introductory handbook to dream interpretation as the authors taught it at the C.G. Jung Institute in New York. It consists of 11 chapters in addition to introductory and concluding chapters. The authors list seven major foci of the book: "(1) The symbolic and metaphoric/allegoric language of dream images; (2) dream imagery related to personal associative material, rational and collective explanatory material, and mythological amplificatory material; (3) various relations between the dream and the dreamer’s conscious positions; (4) the dream’s dramatic structure; (5) the dream’s depictions of the relations between healing archetypal image and personal experience; (6) body imagery in dreams; and (7) dream images of analyst and analysis as material revealing the transferential and countertransferential relationship" (p. 4). They point out that all these areas must be kept in mind as clinical work continues. In fact, they suggest that the "book could be read as a circle, each chapter providing a way station from which to focus on the dream, which lies at its center" (p. 4).
