The use of dreamwork in TA helping relationships


It is widely accepted among professionals working in helping relationships that dreamwork can be effectively applied to different contexts in order to help clients clarify their issues, facilitate changes, and promote personal growth. This article presents a reflection on these possible different uses. It focuses specifically upon the use of transactional analysis of dreams either in a process of decontamination and deconfusion. Two examples of mock sessions on the same dream (including transcripts and audio-video recordings), each of which focus upon the two aforementioned work processes, will help to clarify the theoretical and methodological premises here presented.
