Thesis

A New dimension in dreaming

This study reviewed the current literature as well as did an in depth analysis of Corriere's massive 1974 study. What this paper sought to prove was that there is a dream continuum extending from symbolic dreams to real and transformative dreams. The findings substantiated this hypothesis. It also showed support for Corriere's basic Parallelism hypothesis, and his transformative dream theory; this was done by showing that, in fact, patients undergoing Feeling Therapies do have dreams with more feeling, more dreamer expression, more active dreamer role and more clarity – with more known characters and more known settings. The basic hypotheses presented were proven. The data was analyzed in terms of differences between groups as well as between matched pairs of individuals from each group. Average values on ordinal variables and average distributions for categorical variables were presented and discussed.
