Association for the Study of Dreams(dreams)
Several organizations and periodicals are devoted to the study of dreams, including the Association for the Study of Dreams (ASD), headquartered in Vienna, Virginia. While open to laypersons, the ASD is perhaps the closest thing to an interdisciplinary professional association focused on the study of dreams. ASD members are sent the ASD newsletter and a journal, Dreaming, on a quarterly basis. ASD hosts an annual meeting at which researchers present papers on dreams and workshops are held on various phases of dreamwork. ASD also provides information on such topics as setting up ongoing dream groups.
