The Expressive Body in Life, Art, and Therapy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drawing on her extensive experience in expressive arts therapy, Daria Halprin presents a unique approach to healing through movement and art. She describes the body as the container of one's entire life experience and movement as a language that expresses and reveals our deepest struggles and creative potentials. Interweaving artistic and psychological processes, she offers a philosophy and methodology that invites the reader to consider the transformational capacity of the arts. In this essential resource for anyone interested in the integration of psychotherapy and the arts, Halprin also presents case studies and a selection of exercises that she has evolved over her career and practised at the Tamalpa Institute for over twenty-five years.

Book News Annotation:

Having developed her approach to therapy at the Tamalpa Institute (which she co-founded with her dancer mother), Halprin outlines the principles and thinking that underlies her "movement-based expressive arts therapy." She hopes to provide a simple theoretical foundation for her therapy, as well as offer models for its successful application. As is discernible from the label, her approach rests on the ability of people to express themselves through dance and the visual arts. Distributed by Taylor & Francis.
