The International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) Symposium brings together an international panel of speakers who cover a broad spectrum of scholarship, research, professional practice and personal experience. From these multiple perspectives of breadth and depth, each speaker is well-positioned to reflect on the Current Place of Dreaming in Psychotherapy. IASD is a leading, pioneering international organisation and community of interest that is focused on the personal exploration, scientific study and dissemination of knowledge about dreams. In keeping with this orientation, the IASD symposium has been conceptualised to enable each speaker to bring the unique experience of their own practice, knowledge and scholarship to the conversation, and to provide a forum for an enlivening discussion on this significant and current issue in psychotherapy. Areas of Focus: Dreams as Sources of Creativity and Inspiration; Dream Incubation; Dreams and Physical Illness; Analytic reverie, Deep Listening and the Intersubjective Dream Space.
