About Erik Craig

I have been teaching graduate and undergraduate courses on dreams for almost 30 years now and have been a member of ASD since its first year in existence. My primary interests in dreams are clinical and existential. As a practicing psychologist, the analysis of dreams is an essential aspect of psychotherapy, providing insight, guidance, correction, and inspiration as needed (not always as desired!). As an existential psychologist, I am interested in the relation of the dreaming to waking modes of existence and how best to go about understanding the meaning of dreams in a way that respects their inherent integrity and wisdom. I currently maintain a private practice in psychology in Santa Fe, New Mexico and am Director of Research in Clinical Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA, where I also teach courses in psychotherapy and research.
