    I enjoyed this, I’ve often been frustrated my self by the lack of prescribed method in dream work too. I’ve often read Jung talking about how he doesn’t (didn’t) really have a method, but still give some guidelines here and there. My real intro to psych was John Betts’ course on Jungian psychology, and he said much the same thing as Jung, but still started off with some practical steps like symbol amplification for instance.

    I liked Clara’s multidisciplinary approach: even though I come from a primarily Jungian background, I’ve often incorporated methods of Freud’s and the Gestaltist’s within the same dream.

    I think people like Jung may have avoided prescribing a method for a reason, but I think there are definite guidelines you can take to feel things out. I notice Clara’s approach was designed with subsequent research in mind, and perhaps the tricky nature of just what steps to take in dream work will lead to a series of interesting rival models. Perhaps we’ll even see papers saying “we used the Hillian approach as opposed to the [insert rival name] approach” one day!
