In this new edition of Therapy with Dreams and Nightmares, Delia Cushway continues in her pursuit to show how dreamwork is not the prerogative of expert psychoanalysts, but a fruitful therapeutic tool that can be explored by all counselors and other practitioners in the helping professions.

Emphasizing the idea that dreams are the creation and belonging of the dreamer, and therefore a powerful means of accessing an individual’s emotions, creativity and wisdom, this new edition now includes:

Skills for working with trauma and survivors of sexual abuse
Cross-cultural, spiritual and religious approaches to dreamwork
Up-to-date research and theory on using Cognitive, Objectivist and Constructivist models and methods
More on the importance of reflective practice
The scientific functions and meanings of dreams and their role in information processing and memory consolidation

Steeped in practical hints and tips, vivid case examples and methods of interpreting dream language, this highly accessible, eclectic guide is an invaluable resource for all trainee and qualified therapists looking to work more effectively with a client’s dream material.

'The author's wealth of experience as a therapist and knowledge and understanding of dreams make this an essential read for all aspiring counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists as well as for more experienced practitioners seeking to enhance their practice' -
Professor Sue Wheeler, Director of Doctoral Programme, Institute of Lifelong Learning

'Counselling with Dreams and Nightmares is a comprehensive introduction for counsellors and psychological therapists interested in tapping into rich seams of meaning and emotion to enhance their clinical work. Covering individual and group work, this new edition incorporates developments in imagery, trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder and the impact of early abuse. Written from the author's extensive professional experience and illustrated with invaluable case studies, the book's strength lies in integrating perspectives from many different psychotherapeutic disciplines, from psychoanalytic to cognitive. Delia Cushway's book is accessible to psychological therapists of all theoretical orientations, as well as anyone keen to understand and work with their own dreams. I personally found the book fascinating, illuminating not only my client's material but also my own night-life. I particularly liked the book's cognitive model, drawing on historical, physiological, psychoanalytic and gestalt methods but working within a cognitive framework - dreams are manifestations of our personal meanings and concerns, offering direct access to our cognitive, emotional and embodied schema and can only be interpreted and used by ourselves. The book is a broad-sweep introduction but with references to further material and reading throughout' -
Diana Sanders, Counselling Psychologist and BABCP Accredited Cognitive Psychotherapist, Oxford

'Cushway and Sewell both have a wealth of experience in incorporating dream work into therapy. The authors cover various types of therapies -- Gestalt, cognitive, psychoanalytic, behavioral, and so on -- providing examples on how dream work can be incorporated into each. An integrative approach allows the reader/therapist to move seamlessly from one type of therapy to another and tailor methods and practices along the way. Although the authors encourage adapting the individual techniques, they also give sound practical advice. This second edition covers established theories and methods and provides substantial updates in neuroscience, dream studies, and new types of therapy. A suitable companion for other titles in the 'Therapy in Practice' series'
