To whom does one relate one´s dreams? (Ferenczi 1912)
Dreaming, dreams, dream telling and dream-work is most valued in Group Analysis (GA). But also dreams, due to their ”nature”, bring with them both theoretical and therapeutically most intriguing challenges and perspectives.
With its fixed boundaries in time and space and its infinite room for thoughts and
emotions the analytical group may be understood as functioning on several levels, one
of which is the socalled projective level (Foulkes 1964, p 115). On this level the other
members unconsciously may be perceived as representations of one's inner objects,
including the concepts of the good and evil breast (Klein 1952), so that the analytical
work makes it possible to reach the primitive feelings belonging to the so-called
paranoid-schizoid and depressive positions (Klein 1946)
