Dreams, a Portal to the Source
Edward C. Whitmont and Sylvia Brinton Perera, both leading Jungian analysts, provide an extensive guide to dream interpretation. Practical in approach, it is designed primarily for psychoanalysts and therapists who wish to integrate dream interpretation into their clinical practice. Among the topics covered are the language of dream images; the relations between the dream and the dreamer's conscious positions; the interplay between archetypal and personal levels; the dream's dramatic structure; body imagery in dreams; and the relevance of dreams to transference and countertransference.
