Mary Ann Mattoon gives a clear presentation of C. G. Jung’s method of dream interpretation. Drawing extensively on her own practice as well as the theories of analytical psychology, Mattoon discusses the nature of dreams while also offering step by step advice on how to interpret them and how to verify those interpretations. Chapters on individual and archetypal amplification, the concrete situation of the dreamer, childhood dreams, and an overall appraisal of Jung’s contribution to the field will interest both clinicians and lay people.
