Decoding The Dream
Essays: Dr. Bail Interprets the Dreams of His Patients
The following essays stem from the work Bernard W. Bail, M.D. has done with his patients and includes patient sessions focusing on dreams and associations, and commentary by Dr. Bail. Many of the essays are comprised of patient accounts of the session and are from people who have been in treatment for many years thus there may be many foundational understandings that are not explicitly stated.
One may find it helpful to read the essays The Mother’s Signature and A New Paradigm for Psychoanalysis to get a basic understanding of the Theory of Imprinting, which underlies Dr. Bail’s work. It focuses on our experiences in the womb as the basis for both our physical and emotional origins and uses the dream to unlock the unconscious experiences related to the essence of who we are.
