This preliminary text explores the phenomenon of social dreaming, a concept first introduced at the Tavistock Institute in 1982. The focus is on the dream and the social context of the dreamers rather than the individual dreamers. The dreams often reflect the social environment of the dreamer and prove to be a useful tool when examining the group dynamics. W. Gordon Lawrence offers many examples of dreams narrated and their applications in the social setting. His extensive experience and knowledge on the subject are combined with an easy to understand language in this important text on social dreaming.
