This issue of Socioanalysis brings a wide range of articles.  The mutative unconscious processing within ‘Social Dreaming’ is discussed by David Armstrong who argues that the authority of the dream comes from this. Thomas Kretschmar and Jana Meinel present a new method using associations to colour to explore mental representations and Richard Morgan-Jones considers sociotherapeutic methods, such as those used by Menzies-Lyth in a case study. Other organisational case studies are presented by Lottee Svalgaard and Susan Mravlek. Hannah Piterman challenges the positioning of the case for gender equality in largely economic terms.

The issue also contains two book reviews of important books recently published in the field of Socioanalysis.
