Dreams as Subject of Psychoanalytical Treatment Research

Horst Kächele

This paper will focus on the last of the six functions and will - by providing three empirical illustrations - point to the rather meager attention given to dream reports in treatment research. When we speak about dreams in psychoanalytic therapy, we tend to think of a specific dream; quite rarely it is considered that the repeated communication of dreams belongs to the core features, especially of psychoanalyic therapies. How else could one understand that an expert panel of North-American psychoanalysts places this feature on rank one of a list of features that discriminates a “psychoanalytic prototype” from prototypes of other psychotherapies. (Ablon & Jones 2005).
