In this paper I will define what dream is and what other psychologists such as Freud says about dream and the meaning of dream. Will alsotalk about how other psychologists criticise Freud on his theory. I will then conclude.
The dream is in a mind’s of things that happen in our sleep and the things that we experience in the previousdays. However Freud also stated that dream is the life of mind during our sleep, and the dreams are reaction to a stimulus and can disturbs our sleep (Malcolm1959).

Freud also stated that ineffect, dreams are subject to a kind of censorship achieved through dream work. Freud and others have indentified several aspects of ‘dream work’. Some of the methods used in dream works areCondensation, Displacement, Repression and Representation.
