Between 1981 and now (2024), I have given many talks and seminars to various professional bodies, published many papers in professional journals, published a book about dreams (Living With Dreams), and contributed a chapter on dreams to another book.

The following links are to some of these writings; if you tap or click on the titles (which are pale blue and underlined) the paper or chapter will open in a new web page - simply scroll down to see all the pages of the document.

Also, there's a link to a podcast on dreams and dreaming which I made towards the end of 2023 for The Dreamboat; it is available on all the main podcast platforms. The specific link provided below is for the Spotify  platform.
