What do psychology and neuroscience tell us about our dreams? A dream researcher and practicing psychotherapist presents the science in a nontechnical Q&A format. The history of dream interpretation—from ancient Assyrian dream books to the theories of Carl Jung—is covered and one successful approach to dream studies is described: exploring the real-life incidents brought to mind by dreams and probing their meaning to the individual in an objective way.

Robbins is a psychologist who has held a number of positions as a researcher in the Department of Psychiatry of the George Washington University Medical School, the National Institute of Mental Health, and the Public Health Service.

He has published numerous research papers in psychological and psychiatric journals, written many books on psychological topics for general readers and is the author of several novels.
