Dreams, An Opening to the Inner World


Friday Lecture:


The lecture will provide a progressive introduction into understanding dreams and the role dream analysis plays in accomplishing the difficult tasks of bringing our unconscious into awareness. Beginning with historical inspirational roots of dreams, you will be enlightened with a greater understanding of psychoanalytic approaches to dream interpretation.  Woven throughout will be some scientific data such as laboratory studies of sleep and dreams.  We will finish with Jung’s endeavor to understand dreams as the “art and science”.

The Saturday Dream Workshop:


This workshop will provide an experiential learning situation. Participants will not be expected to bring their own dreams.  Two hours of dream examples will be analyzed. The dreams presentation will be intermingled with reflection time, note taking, and each participant from the group will have the opportunity to interpret each dream presented. All participants can expect to experience interaction in a non-judgmental environment.

Listening for Openings. Amplifying Change.
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy 5-day Intensive Workshop

Presented by: Dr. Jeff Chang


In this five-day intensive workshop, you go beyond a superficial focus on questions and procedural sequences, and learn to develop a solution-focused presence as a way of being. This goal-directed, evidence-based approach to therapy is particularly relevant for anyone working in settings where resources are scarce and service delivery must be focused. It is effective with a variety of difficult problems, including disordered eating, intimate partner violence, substance misuse, and chronic and persistent mental health problems.


In a class alongside other practicing professionals and graduate students, you gain an understanding of the what, why, and how of SFBT, including:

• the history and assumptions of SFBT
• listening for openings and developing solution-focused hearing
• sequencing questions and inviting answers
• obtaining vivid descriptions of solutions, both real and imagined
• tailoring your interventions to clients’ receptivity
• scheduling appointments for maximum impact and minimum resource expenditure
• termination and relapse prevention


Cost: C$800/person + GST (general)
C$700/person + GST (AU practicum supervisors)
C$550/person + GST (full-time graduate students)
Location: Mount Royal University, Calgary (workshop runs on-site 9:00 a.m.– 4:30 p.m. daily)
Online Form (limited spaces; refundable through June 27, 2019)

Workshop Presenter

Dr. Jeff Chang, Associate Professor in the Master of Counselling program at Athabasca University, has been a Registered Psychologist in Alberta for more than 30 years. An early adopter of SFBT, Jeff visited the Brief Family Therapy Center in Milwaukee, where SFBT was developed, in 1992, and learned SFBT from Steve de Shazer, Insoo Kim Berg and Eve Lipchik. He has presented on SFBT in North America, Europe and Asia, and has written extensively on the connections and distinctions between solution-focused and narrative therapies.
