Can Dream Journals Be Helpful in Understanding Weird Dreams?

Asked by on with 1 answer:

Having weird dreams and therapist is questioning if they are happening because i could be repressing¬† internal battles. My new therapist is having me keep a “Dream Journal.” Freud has said that “dreams are the royal road to the unconscious mind.” I’m wondering if you think that this could be helpful/not helpful/why would she be having me keep one, and how many people here are keeping a dream journal???
