Summary Reviews C.E. Hill's cognitive-experiential model for working with dreams. Developed over many years by Hill and her students, the approach integrates aspects from several existing dream theories, such as Freudian, Jungian, Gestalt, phenomenological, client-centered, and behavioral, to create a theoretically consistent, three-staged model. Using this approach, therapists collaborate with clients to help them explore their dreams, gain insight into the meaning of their dreams, and take action to resolve issues in their waking life. The book discusses the theoretical basis of the model and provides instructions for implementing it in practice. Through the use of valuable clinical examples, chapter authors present extensions of the model in specific settings and populations, such as groups, men, the bereaved, and nightmare sufferers. The last part of the book describes how to train therapists to use the model and provides a detailed review of the model's empirical research. This approach offers therapists and their clients a structured but flexible method for maximizing the therapeutic benefits of working with dreams.
