The Psychological Value of Dreams
By considering dream figures as aspects of themselves and the dream
story as an expression of their inner thoughts, the students will begin to
know themselves much better.
By looking at our dreams we can discover our strengths and our
weaknesses, we can find the missing parts of ourselves and also find the
rejected parts, the inner enemies and the seeds of prejudice. This
discovery can point the way to psychological development.
Increased self-awareness fosters self-empowerment, self-esteem and a
feeling of self-responsibility. In addition, dreams can provide ideas for
future goals and self-development.
