After attending this course, students will be able to:
1. describe the mechanisms that are active in creating a dream.
Enhanced understanding of these mechanisms when combined with specific knowledge about each individual patient, allows the student to use the dream to get a better look at the deeper unconscious motivations of the person in psychoanalysis, and therefore help that person resolve his/her intra-psychic conflicts.
Each student's participation in class discussion and his or her demonstration of understanding of the course objectives and reading material is assessed in a written evaluation by the instructor(s).
