Jerome D. Oremland, M.D.

Although any dream or any series of dreams can be used by the analytic therapist as part of the large mosaic of interacting phenomena for evaluating the progress of an analytic therapy, the author is cautious about regarding any one dream or any series of dreams as portending termination.* The Janusian quality of dreams like the Janusian quality of the unconscious is seductively deceptive. Even though dreams occupy an unusually vital place in post hoc illustration, the use of dreams for predictive purposes is heavily freighted with transference and countertransference misinterpretation.

The specific dream during the termination phase of successful therapies that will be described belongs to a genre of dreams in which the therapist himself appears (Fenichel, 1924; Feldman, 1945; Gitelson, 1952; Rappaport, 1959; Harris, 1962; Rosenbaum, 1965).

* Although the observations reported here are from successful psychoanalyses, experience indicates that they are equally applicable to psychotherapy to the degree that the therapy has an analytic orientation.
