The Dream Studies Certificate imparts an understanding of dream research, practice, and personal meaning. Students gain an understanding of important research about dreams and to implement that knowledge to accomplish personal and professional goals. Coursework includes:

  • Personal Mythology and Dreamwork
  • Neuropsychology of Dreams and Dreaming
  • Arts-Based Inquiry
  • Understanding and Appreciating Dreams

Upon completion, students will understand the major neuropsychological models of dreaming—highlighting similarities and differences between them, recognizing how they explain the process of dreaming, and identifying the data or arguments that support or contest each of them. By developing proficiency with methods that can be used to help a person explore the nature of his or her own personal mythology as expressed in dreams, practicing therapists will have the opportunity to supplement their training and enrich the quality of their therapeutic work.
