Dream therapy is a method of deriving meaning from images and elements from dreams in order to gain insight into a patient’s psychology. Most famously put to use as a psychoanalysistool by Sigmund Freud in the late 19th century and outlined in his book The Interpretation of Dreams in 1900, dream therapy took a prominent place in the public’s understanding of psychiatry and the therapy process throughout the 20th century. By the end of the century though, most mainstream psychologists questioned the validity of this therapy, though it continued to see some use, especially in the treatment of recurring dreams and nightmares. The alternative medicine movement adopted dream therapy as a treatment method, leading to its resurgence in popularity through the 1990s and 2000s.
At its core, dream therapy involves recording and analyzing dreams. The patient initially might find it difficult to remember dreams, but with some conditioning, he or she should be able to retain them long enough to write them into a journal. Voice recordings also can be used, and some therapists recommend drawing a scene from the dream. The important thing is to record the dream immediately after waking. Even when recorded within the first waking minutes, these journal entries will quite often be fragmented impressions rather than full, accurate records, and this fact must be remembered during the analysis process.
