Dream analysis is subject of interest since Antiquity, inside and outside the Psychology field. The aim of this study is to present a national integrative literature review concering the theme. Through a systematic selection in LILACS, SciELO e PePSIC, between 2001 and 2011, eight articles were retrieved. There is, in general, a small number of studies aimed specifically at the subject. Among them, ideas defended by each psychological pratice are presented. They concern causality, function of dreams and dream work in psychotherapeutic practice. In addition, similitudes and differences are discussed in different perspectives of understanding dreams. It has been made evident that the subject is controversial amongst them. Efforts in order to build and integrative or questioning paper were not found.

Keywords : Dreaming; Dream analysis; Dream recall; Psychotherapeutic techniques.
