"A Clinician’s Guide to Dream Therapy is the perfect resource for clinicians wishing to incorporate dreamwork into their psychotherapy practice. Leslie Ellis offers a scholarly yet entertaining summary of the major contemporary approaches to dreams and outlines the key effective elements across these approaches. She illustrates all this with engrossing clinical anecdotes that give readers a solid idea of how to begin this work."
Deirdre Barrett, author, The Committee of Sleep; faculty, Harvard University
"Leslie Ellis is passionate about dream work. In this inspiring book, she takes us on her journey to find contemporary perspectives from research, neuroscience and a range of clinical perspectives. She vividly describes experiential, creative approaches for clinical practice."
Serge Prengel, editor, SomaticPerspectives.com
"Leslie Ellis is adept at bridging the divide between the science of dreams and the practical techniques of working with dreams. In her recounting of her own dreams she acts as a wonderful exemplar demystifying the process from the therapist-as-client perspective. The discussion of nightmares is particularly beneficial. Understanding how to respond to someone dealing with that special nocturnal trauma is a necessary task. There are challenges and opportunities which can produce a pivotal moment in the course of a therapy."
