Abstract

This research paper is an exploration of salient dream images as experienced by two women in a non-clinical setting. The descriptions and interpretations of these dream images are explored in light of the theory of Carl G. Jung. Jungian Theory recognizes the significance of symbols in dreams; images represent particular details and dynamics from the participants' life context. Interpretations are further clarified by looking at Jung's notions of compensation, casual and purpose roles of dream images, and archetypes. Consideration is given primarily to verbal commentary but also to the use of art materials as a medium to facilitate dream image description and interpretation.
