A professor of psychology and practicing psychotherapist has created a unique "dictionary of dreams" to help you understand the major themes and hidden nuances of any dream. The unique format has three sections. The first section features questions and answers about the most common dream elements, expertly categorized so you can identify their meanings in your particular personal situation. Section two is an A-to-Z dictionary, providing background on dream symbols as they appear in many cultures and eras, based on research by leading psychologists, anthropologists, and mythologists. Finally, see how to understand any past or future dream and learn how to map your own personal symbol guide--or someone else's.
