9781855753426: Introduction to Social Dreaming: Transforming Thinking (Forensic Psychotherapy Monograph)

This preliminary explores the phenomenon of social dreaming, a concept first introduced at the Tavistock Institute in 1982. The focus is on the dream and the social context of the dreamers rather than the individual dreamers. The dreams often reflect the social environment of the dreamer and prove to be a useful tool when examining the group dynamics. W. Gordon Lawrence offers many examples of dreams narrated and their applications in the social setting. His extensive experience and knowledge on the subject are combined with an easy to understand language in this important text on social dreaming.

Review:

'This is as fine an introduction to Lawrence's concept of social dreaming as one could have hoped for. It is lucid, concise, full of vignettes that are unusually clear, and as one would by now expect of anything written by this author, it is inevitably creative, even if it is meant to be "just" an introduction.'- Christopher Bollas'Lawrence unbinds the dream from the confines of the private (including the world of the consulting rooms) and reinstates it in its primordial role as a useful mental instrument with unlimited social function.'- Dr Judit Szekacs, psychoanalyst 'And now we have it at last, the perfect primer on social dreaming, and in the master's voice. As social dreaming moves more and more firmly into mainstream organizational development, Lawrence's book arrives in time to explain the history, to examine the underpinning conceptual frameworks, to explicate the practice and to encourage new ways of thinking about accessing the layers of reality in our working lives. This will become a textbook in time.'- Ruth Silver, CBE, Principal, Lewisham College London, Visiting Professor at London Southbank University 'Social dreaming adds depth to group-analytic explorations in workshops and conferences. Lawrence's work provides new and important pathways to unconscious thoughts and phantasies. This book should be essential reading for group analysts.'- Dr Malcolm Pines, Past President of the International Association of Group Psychotherapy and founder member of Institute of Group Analysis, London
