Ninety-four undergraduates participated in a computer-assisted, therapist empathy, or therapist empathy + input dream session. Although all conditions were rated positively, both therapist conditions were rated higher than the computer condition, and action ideas were better for the therapist empathy condition than for the other 2 conditions at postsession. At follow-up, the therapist empathy + input was rated higher than the empathy condition, which was higher than the computer condition. Participants in all conditions liked gaining awareness/insight, associations, and the approach to working with dreams; participants in both therapist conditions liked their therapist; participants in the empathy condition liked waking life links. Therapist condition participants mentioned fewer disliked things but complained more about research procedures; computer participants complained about the computer program and not working with a person.
