Resolved Question:

How do I become a certified/licensed dream interpreter with no other education?

llw26 :

Do you have any training in psychology or the social sciences? I have no formal training in dream interpretation, but I am very interested in the subject...I have read many books and studied it on my own time...have you done anything like this whereas you would be considered an expert?

Customer:

I did a couple of years of Social Sciences (psychology and sociology) courses at University, but did not finish.

llw26 :

Have you studied dream interpretation at all?

Customer:

Not officially, just as far as looking up many of my own and my partner's dreams in a dictionary.

llw26 :

I would suggest starting out by reading some books on dream interpretation...this is one I've used...http://www.amazon.com/Dream-Sight-Dictionary-Guide-Interpreting/dp/0738726028/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1333941306&sr=8-1

llw26 :

I don't see why you couldn't try to become a dream interpreter on here, once you've read a few books...I don't think you have to have a certification in order to interpret dreams, many people do it on the side of where their true interests lie.

Customer:

I am really interested in finding some course that I could possibly take online, that would provide more of a curriculum. Although I am certainly open to reading books, I like to have a little more structure.

Customer:

I would love to interpret dreams on here, but the qualifications say I have to be licensed.

Customer:

(or have finished a degree)

llw26 :

Ah, okay. The classes I do know of cost around what you've already found ($65 and up). I am sorry, I didn't realize you had to have some type of licensure in order to interpret dreams..sorry about that!

Customer:

Well, that was my question. How do I become licensed?

llw26 :

Once you take the training classes you are then eligible for certification...it also depends on what type of dream interpretation you are interested in.

Customer:

What training classes? Can you give me some direction here?

llw26 :

So in order to have a license you have to have some type of licensure through the state such as a licensed professional counselor or a licensed clinical professional counselor. However you can obtain a certificate of dream interpretation through this web page (for example) http://yoursoulcoach.com/2010/05/12/gateway-dreaming-certification/

llw26 :

In order to obtain such licensure you have to have a masters degree.

Customer:

That is the course I found that is $877... more than I hope to spend for an online course!

llw26 :

However! The certification should assist with you being able to interpret dreams. There are some sites that are only out there in order to assist with your interest in dream interpretation; thus you need to make sure the site you sign up for in order to obtain your certification is one that will allow you said certification. If it is a site like this one: http://www.universalclass.com/i/course/dream-interpretation-101.htm They do not allow for you to have a certification afterwards.

llw26 :

I would agree...I think $877 is redic. Let me see if I can find something else

llw26 :

This site is interesting, but it doesn't have the prices...which is suggestive of being $$. http://www.newdreamwork.com/certification-programs.html

llw26 :

This web site says you do not need a certification or license in order to practice dream interpretation.... http://www.infuzemag.com/There-Are-Many-Dream-Interpretations.php

Customer:

Thanks for taking a look for me. I guess I will do some more digging on my own, and definitely check out that book you referred me to. It looks really good!

llw26 :

It is! I love the books that are out there...amazon has some great ideas and references!

Customer:

cool, well thanks again!
