Although most analysts would agree that the dream has lost its unequivocal centrality in the analytic endeavor, it remains true that most analysts pay particular attention to a dream report and that the dream continues to have a special place in professional discourse. "The Dream Discourse Today," an unrivalled synoptic view of key American, British and French papers on dream analysis in clinical practice, offers the reader a range of perspectives. Placed in historical context, both the papers and the editorial commentary invite a comparative reading which exhibits converging implications, often drawn from very different approaches, for clinical practice.
"The Dream Discourse Today" is the first historical and theoretical survey of its subject and the classic nature of the papers included make it a first-class work of reference for psychoanalysts and psychotherapists of all schools, whether in practice or still in training, and valuable reading for all those interested in the theory of the technique of dream analysis.
Contributors: Masud Khan, Charles Brenner, R. R. Greenson, Hanna Segal, J. P. Pontalis, Harold Stewart, James Gammill, Didier Anzieu, Jacob Spanjaard, R. Greenberg, C. Pearlman, Cecily de Monchaux, Robert D. Stolorow and George Atwood.

Industry Reviews

"... I think Flanders' book stands out in its genuine attempt to be inclusive. I would happily use the book as prescribed reading for a series of postgraduate seminars with psychotherapy students. There is also plenty for the practising therapist to dip into and puzzle over." - British Journal of Psychothearapy
