The Effects of Group Dreamwork on Spiritual Well-Being
Abstract

This exploratory study investigated the effect of Jungian-oriented group dreamwork on spiritual well-being and the related constructs of purpose in life and social interest. Participants were students at a religiously oriented liberal arts college. An experimental design with matching was employed. Multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) followed by univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA) were used. Power and effect size analyses were also employed. The authors are cautious in their interpretation due to small group sizes and the exploratory nature of the research. Nevertheless, the findings suggest some statistical support for the efficacy of a Jungian-oriented dream appreciation group model to enhance spiritual well-being, purpose in life, and social interest.
