The Subject is ‘Dreaming’ (IFPP One-Day Seminar)

This one-day seminar is dedicated to exploring and discussing ideas and concepts about the nature of dreaming, its significance in our lives and its significance in terms of our mental wellbeing.

The significance of dreaming can be traced throughout historical, religious and anthropological archives. Records of dream interpretations appear in writings as far back as the ancient Sumarians and Egyptians, in the Hindu, Buddhist and Christian tradition and in aboriginal, Mexican and native American culture.

We may dismiss our dreams, be alarmed by nightmares or consult dream dictionaries to decipher their meanings but we are not unaware of the fact that we dream and are often confounded by them.  Are dreams a portal to another realm, the royal road to the unconscious mind as Sigmund Freud described or simply an artefact of night-time brain activity, a neural activity filing away and storing the memories of the day?

The seminar will be of interest not only to professionals working in the area of mental health and wellbeing but also to anyone with an interest in the topic.

The Irish Forum of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy (IFPP) are hosting this seminar to mark their annual congress. 6 CPD points have been awarded for the day by the Irish Council of Psychotherapy (ICP).

The day will be led by Marian Dunlea, Ross Skelton, Anne Murphy, Donna Redmond and Rob Weatherill.
