Phantasy, Dreaming and Awakening in Psychoanalysis

Donald L. Carveth, Ph.D., RP, FIPA


As Lewin (1955) pointed out, instead of building its metapsychology on the basis of neurotic conflict, psychoanalysis might have centered on the psychology of dreaming and unconscious phantasy. We invite “dreamers” to lie down in a quiet, dimly lit room and engage in a dreamy dialogue in order to help them wake up. This thesis will be supported both theoretically and clinically.
