The dream and dreaming has been pivotal in psychoanalytic theory, both for a theory of the mind and clinical technique.  In “The Interpretation of Dreams,” Freud elaborated the “dream work,” and the structure of the dream, as he formulated psychic structure and his idea of the unconscious wish and repression.  Bion offers a different perspective on the unconscious and its formation through his idea of alpha function.  His focus is on the dreamer and dreaming as an active process, occurring during sleeping and waking life, allowing us to process our emotional experiences. Writers like Ferro and Ogden, further developed the theory of dreaming in working with reverie and the “waking dream” in the sessions. These ideas about the dream and dreaming as well as working with dreams clinically will be discussed.

Catherine Mallouh MD is a faculty member at SFCP and an Assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at UCSF.  She has taught case conferences, as well as courses on film, the dream in psychoanalysis, and  on psychic retreats.  She has also published on film and psychoanalysis.  She has a private practice in San Francisco where in addition to psychoanalysis, she specializes in women’s mental health and in particular, working with pregnant and postpartum women. 

 

Course Objectives:
Participants will be able to
  1. describe Freud’s theory of the dream work and the unconscious wish as the motive for the dream.
  2. discuss Bion’s theory of alpha function and the importance of the ongoing process of dreaming in waking life.
  3. describe and use the concept and experience of reverie in their clinical work as a means to understand the patient’s unconscious process.
