Abstract: The purpose of this study was to examine current uses of dreamwork with the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music (GIM) and to explore clinical examples of using dreams in GIM sessions. Respondents who valued their dreams were more likely to use dreamwork activities with GIM. Clinical and personal examples of using dreamwork with GIM were provided. The results provide a representation of how dreams are currently used with GIM and suggest the potential need for additional dreamwork training for GIM therapists.
