Dreamwork Approaches

At the Institute for Dream Studies (IDS) we believe that dreams can lead an individual on paths of awareness, personal growth, and healing. We employ an eclectic blend of theoretical approaches to guide our students and clients along that path.

The Institute for Dream Studies is approved by SCLLR (SC Dept. of Labor, Licensing and Regulation) to provide Continuing Education credits to counselors, marriage and family therapists and psycho-educational specialists. (Sponsor #455). CE contact hours are available.
