2 Dream Facts Most dreams last anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes People don’t only dream in black and white, as was once believedEven thought hey may not remember them, everyone dreams several times a night.During a typical lifetime, we spend about 6 years dreaming and have 131,400 dreamsPeople who have been blind from birth have dreams that are formed from their other senses (ex touch, smell, sound)When people are snoring, they’re not dreamingElephants (and some other animals) sleep standing up during non-REM sleep, but lie down for REM sleep.Most of us dream 5 times each night.We only remember a dream if we’ve been women in the middleWhen you dream your brain is as active as it is when you are awakeDuring the Roman Era, some dreams were submitted to the senate for analysis and interpretation5 minutes after the end of a dream we can only remember 50%, ten minutes later only 10%Give a brief overview of the presentation. Describe the major focus of the presentation and why it is important.Introduce each of the major topics.To provide a road map for the audience, you can repeat this Overview slide throughout the presentation, highlighting the particular topic you will discuss next.
3 Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung’s Theories on Dreams: Jung felt that dreams allowed us to reflect on our waking selves and solve our problems or think through issues.This is another option for an Overview slides using transitions.
4 Freud claims that dreams originated from our primal needs and repressed wishes Based on the idea of REPRESSED LONGING- the desires that we aren’t able to express in a social setting. Dreams allow the unconscious mind to act out those unacceptable thoughts and desiresHis theory about dreams focuses primarily on sexual desires and symbolism (influenced by the sexually repressed Victorian Era)Examples of symbolism: cylindrical objects represents the penis, cave or an enclosed object with an opening represents that vagina… a dream of a train entering a tunnel is really about suppressed longing for sexual intercourseThe mind divided into the conscious and unconscious mindConscious: contains memories that we can recallUnconscious: harbours the memories we can not recall and influences human behaviour. It is more powerful and speaks to us while we dream
5 Interpreting dreams help us understand not only our personality, but also helps patients discover important occurrences from the past that assist psychologists with diagnosisPsychologists use Dream Therapy, Hypnosis (reliability questioned) and Free Association techniques (ex first word that comes to mind) to understand problems
6 SLEEP CYCLE- Five Stages: 1. 4-5% Light sleep, muscle activity slows down% Breathing pattern and heart rate slows, slight decrease in body temperature3. 4-6% Deep sleep begins, brain begins to generate slow delta waves% Very deep sleep, rhythmic breathing, limited muscle activity, brain produces delta waves% REM Rapid Eye Movement, brain waves speed up and dreaming occurs, muscles relax ad heart rate increases, breathing is rapid and shallow. If you wake frequently during REM sleep person is irritable, anxious, has difficulty concentrating. Body feels paralyzed during REM sleep.
7 Dream IncubationIs learning to plant a seed for a specific dream topic to occurThose who believe in problem solving through dreams use this technique to direct their dreams to the specific topicDr. Barret had students focus on a problem prior to sleep. It is certainly possible to come up with novel solutions. In her study 2/3 of participants had dreams that addressed their chosen problemExamples of Dream Incubations (Creativity and inventions that came from dreams):Kekule- German chemist who discovered structure of benzene moleculeElias Howe- inventor of the sewing machineAuthors- Mary Shelly (Frankenstein), Edgar Allan Poe (The Raven)Musicians- Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, BeethovenGolfer Jack Nicklaus (new way to hold club)This is another option for an Overview slide.
8 Lucid DreamingIs a learned skill and occurs when you are dreaming, you realize you are dreaming and you are able to then control what happens in your dream—all while you are still asleep. Unique ability in dreaming, studies show that fewer than 100,000 Americans have this ability. Discovered in 1959Can help with personal development (ex. Handicapped people can walk, simulator to fly) Can help with nightmares (ex. Dreamer can confront the attacker)What will the audience be able to do after this training is complete? Briefly describe each objective how the audience will benefit from this presentation.
9 Nightmares -Having same or similar dreams, Common in children -Usually cause strong feelings of fears, sadness, or anxiety -Traumatic events cause nightmares -Occur during REM sleep Night Terrors -Non-REM sleep -Last 5-20 mins -Asleep but appear awake (ex sitting up in bed)Use a section header for each of the topics, so there is a clear transition to the audience.
10 Common dreams and their interpretations: Being naked in public- Most of us have had the dream at some point that we’re at school, work or some social event, and we suddenly realize we forgot to put on clothes! Experts say this means: We’re trying to hide something (and without clothes wehave a hard time doing that) or we’re not prepared for something, like a presentation or test (and now everyone is going to know- we’re exposed!) If we’re naked but no one notices, then the interpretation is that whatever we’re afraid of is unfounded. If we don’t care that we’re naked the interpretation is that we’re comfortable with who we are. Falling- You’re falling, falling, falling… and then you wake up. This is a very common dream and is said to symbolize insecurities and anxiety. Something in your life is essentially out of control and there is nothing you can do to stop it. Another interpretation is that you have a sense of failure about something. Maybe you’re not doing well in school or at work and are afraid you’re going to be fired or expelled. Again, you feel that you can’t control the situation. Being chased- The ever popular chase dream can be extremely frightening. What usually symbolizes is that your problems. What that problem is depends on who is chasing you. It may be a problem at work, or it may be something about yourself that you know is destructive. For example, you may be drinking too much, and your dream may be telling you that your drinking is becoming a real problemAdd slides to each topic section as necessary, including slides with tables, graphs, and images.See next section for sample table, graph, image, and video layouts.
11 Interpretations continued: Taking an exam (or forgetting that you have one) This is another very common dream. You suddenly realize you are supposed to be taking an exam at that very moment. You might be running through the hallways and can’t find the classroom. This type of dream can have several variations that have similar meanings. (Maybe your pen won’t write, so you can’t finish writing your answers). What experts say this may mean is that you’re being scrutinized about something or feel your being tested– maybe you’re facing a challenge you don’t think your up to. You don’t feel prepared or able to hold up to the scrutiny. It may also mean there is something you’ve neglected that you know needs your attention. Flying Many flying dreams are the result of lucid dreaming. Not all flying dreams are, however. Typically dreaming that you are flying means you are on top of things. You are in control of the things that matter to you. Or, maybe you’ve just gained a new perspective on things. It may also mean you are strong willed and feel like no one and nothing can defeat you. If you are having problems maintaining your flight, someone or something may be standing in the say of you having control. If you are afraid while flying, you may have challenges that you don’t feel up to. Running, but going nowhere This theme can also be part of the chasing dream. Your trying to run, but wither your legs won’t move or you simply aren’t going anywhere- as if you were on a treadmill. According to some, this dream means you have too much on your plate. You’re trying to do too many things at once and can’t catch up or ever get ahead. Your teeth falling out Many people have dreams that they lose all of their teeth. In this dream, they may feel something strange in their mouth and then spit teeth into their hand, eventually losing all their teeth. According to some, our teeth are related to our sense of power and our ability to communicate. Losing teeth can indicated lose of power. Some experts interpret these dreams as sexual repression.Keep it brief. Make your text as brief as possible to maintain a larger font size.
