A unique, encyclopedic account of the many ways in which science has found access to our dreams. <P>In what has been called "the best general introduction to this fascinating subject" (Die Welt, Hamburg), The Dimensions of Dreams summarizes in one encyclopedic volume the vast knowledge modern science has been able to amass about the world of dreams since Freud first published his groundbreaking Interpretation of Dreams in 1900. Freud's work, and that of Jung, provided the major impetus for many of the dream theories that have arisen this century, all trying to tease meaning from the often puzzling contents of dreams and to enlist them in the therapeutic process. Ole Vedfelt reviews in depth the large body of research about dreams that has found its way into the literature, from the work of Freud and Jung to that of many other important investigators, including Alfred Adler, Erich Fromm, Montague Ullmann, Calvin Hall, and Medard Boss. Vedfelt also discusses dreamwork in gestalt therapy and psychodrama, and describes the results of modern laboratory investigations of sleep and dreaming. Among the other subjects covered are dreams and psychosis, parapsychological phenomena, and how dreams are affected by organic diseases and physical symptoms. The Dimensions of Dreams is a unique and indispensable handbook for the professional, and compelling reading for the general public.

Following severe brain injury the immediate concern is a simple one--the survival of the patient. Subsequent prediction of the quality and extent of recovery becomes increasingly difficult. Although physical, e.g. sensory and motor, recovery dominates the first six months, psychological symptoms, which form the focus of this book gradually take precedence. These are of two main types: cognitive, with disturbances of memory, intellect, and information-processing; interpersonal/emotional, with disturbances of volition, emotional control, and behaviour. In this book the nature, severity, and management of deficits in these areas are examined in detail along with the fundamental pathophysiology of head injury, problems of measuring and defining outcome, its psychological and social consequences. The specific problems of head injuries to children are also discussed.
