Methodological Issues in the Study of Dream Content

  • Stephen Catalano


Research on the study of dream content is surprisingly limited in the number of empirical studies conducted since the turn of the century. Winget and Kramer (1979) compiled an impressive collection of data, reviewing the content and methodology employed in every dream content study available to that date. Possible reasons for the lack of research on dreams may be related to the extraordinary influence of psychoanalytical thought upon dream theory as well as to certain methodological difficulties in the collection and study of dream content.
