DUESBURY, founder of yourguidingdreams.comannounces her book, The Counselor's Guide For Facilitating The Interpretation Of Dreams: Family and Other Relationship Systems Perspectives (Routledge) https://www.routledge.com/The-Counselors-Guide-for-Facilitating-the-Interpretation-of-Dreams-Family/Duesbury/p/book/9780415883429 is Winner of Book Excellence Award (Ontario, Canada) in the category of relationships.
The interpretation of dreams has long been considered by many professionals as beyond the practices to include in clinical training. Why? Because use of dreams has often meant the therapist interprets dreams for the dreamer-patient.
Currently there is a textbook to train students and practicing clinicians on how to facilitate the dreamer-patient's interpretation of his or her own dreams. Facilitate means to assist. That is, the therapist assists the dreamer on how to interpret his or her own dreams. The textbook is The Counselor's Guide for Facilitating the Interpretation of Dreams: Family and Other Relationship Systems Perspectives (Routledge, 2010). Therapists' facilitation is by way of the researched Personalized Method for Interpreting Dreams (PMID), (Duesbury, 2000).
Dreams often merge from the dreamer's day-before experiences, thoughts, and emotions.
The PMID model steps encompass the dreamer's pre-dream experiences, thoughts, and emotions to arrive at solutions or suggestions.
Research results on use of the PMID model and comprehensive chapter self-study questions are among the numerous contributions in this book. Also included are descriptions of several dream interpretation models along with narratives on use of dreams from ancient times through contemporary times.
A brief summary of Duesbury's rsum is: From public accountant and associate professor of accounting, to counselor education, to membership in the ACA, research, writing, and acceptance of membership in the APA.
Practitioners are respectfully encouraged to use The Counselor's Guide for Facilitating the Interpretation of Dreams: Family and Other Relationship Systems Perspective as a textbook and a practitioner's guide for facilitating patients' interpretation of dreams.
"Finally, we have an authoritative guide, a workable and accessible method that shows, step by step, how we actually are the final authority on the meaning of our own dreams. In a well researched and practical way, Duesbury shows how to unfold the interior meaning of our dreams with all their complexity and allure. It is a masterful and original contribution."
