Montague Ullman's Method for Group Dreamwork
Montague Ullman's group dreamwork method, generally referred to as humanistic and transpersonal, is taught by Dr. Stanley Krippner. The goal is to elicit a dream's meaning from the dreamer rather than to have it superimposed by an outside observer or authority. A series of carefully-designed procedures puts the focus on both the dream and the dreamer, beginning with the dreams presentation, continuing with clarification of the dream's content and projection into that content by members of the group.
In This Session:
- The Ullman Method protects the integrity of the dreamer who has volunteered a dream report
- A minimum of training is needed as long as the method's procedure is followed exactly
- Ullman's method is based on his decades of work as a psychoanalyst and psychotherapist, as well as decades of additional experience as an international workshop leader
