Development of Beliefs about the Origins and Controllability of Dreams.
Woolley, Jacqueline D.; Boerger, Elizabeth A.
Developmental Psychology, v38 n1 p24-41 Jan 2002
Three studies investigated development of beliefs about dreams among preschoolers, elementary school children, and adults. Results revealed significant changes between 3- and 5-years about the role of behavioral experiences and mental processes in generation of dream content. There was significant development in beliefs that dreams are not subject to conscious control. Controllability beliefs were higher among females than males. (Author/KB)
