Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0517887886, Paperback)Dreamcatching, by Alan Siegel, clinical psychologist (Dreams That Can Change Your Life), and Kelly Bulkeley, dream researcher (The Wilderness of Dreams), is for parents who are interested in finding out what their children dream about. Through dreams, parents may gain a deeper understanding of what a child is thinking, feeling, and needing. (A child, for instance, with recurrent dreams of being naked in public may be feeling self-conscious and may require special sensitivity when she's in a public situation.) Siegel and Bulkeley have suggestions for helping even very young children remember their dreams and for gaining insight into a child's dreams and nightmares by relating them to the child's waking experiences. They discuss common dream themes and ways to talk with your child about their dreams (don't over analyze, at least in front of them). They also provide an approach to nightmares: "Nightmares are more often like a vaccine than a poison ... a minute dose of a disease that mobilizes our antibodies and makes us more resistant to the virulence of the disease." Siegel and Bulkeley believe that your response can break the cycle of nightmares. Wonderful dreams from real children throughout the book enhance its worth.
