Why do we dream? A free lecture by UEL dreams expert Dr Josie Malinowski
Why do we dream? Investigating whether dreams help us to process our emotions
University of East London psychology lecturer Dr Josie Malinowski will try to unlock some of the mysteries of our dreams when she delivers a talk at University Square Stratford.
Dreaming is something that all of us do, but few of us understand. Different cultures have different interpretations of our nocturnal visions, from insights into the future, to communications from the spirit world. But what of science?
As well as being a psychology lecturer, Dr Malinowski is a leading oneirologist (dream researcher) and she will be presenting the latest scientific research in this fascinating field.
Dr Malinowski says, “Many theories exist to answer the question ‘why do we dream?’ But there is no one definitive answer. One popular theory is that dreams are like 'overnight therapy' - they help us to process our emotions, so that we can cope with the emotional experiences that we have in our waking lives.”
Dr Malinowski's lecture takes place on 11 March at University Square Stratford, 1 Salway Road, London, E15 1NF
From 11.30am – 2pm
