Expressive Body in Life, Art and Therapy free pdf Drawing on her extensive experience in expressive arts therapy, Daria Halprin presents a unique approach to healing through movement and art.

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.
