LISBOA, Aline Vilhena  e  FERES-CARNEIRO, Terezinha. The dream in couple therapy. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2010, vol.15, n.2, pp. 181-188. ISSN 1413-294X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1413-294X2010000200007.

This paper deals with the question of the dream in couple therapy, taken as a technical resource for analysis, in the elaboration of a traumatic material. The dream is understood by Freud as an individualized work, representative of repressed content related to a forbidden wish. However, the dream, under the theory of René Kaës about its polyphony, gains a shared function when present in the intersubjective dimension of a group, family and, in the case of this study, of a couple. Not only the dream content, but the work carried out by the pre-conscious as well, reveals relevant data for clinical investigation. The marital link comprises a fertile ground in which psychological activities, such as projections and identifications, appear with more intensity, and are shared in dreaming. Fragments of a couple clinical case show how the dream can be a way of understanding intersubjectivity that is bound to repressed material.

Palavras-chave : dream; dream content; psychological work; couple therapy.
