Elisha Clark Halpin

The Arts & Design Research Incubator (ADRI) will host a series of IN-bodied Integration workshops led by ADRI Embedded Researcher Elisha Clark Halpin, associate professor and associate director for instruction, School of Theatre, on March 28, April 4, 11, and 18, 6­–8 p.m. in the ADRI (16 Borland).

This four-part class is an opportunity for participants to build a stronger foundation of body-mind connection, through an exploration of mindfulness and somatic movement. Classes incorporate breath work, easy movement and poses, basic principles of Neurosculpting, expressive dancing, journaling, and guided meditation.

As an ADRI Embedded Researcher, Elisha Clark Halpin plans to research trauma and its effects on the body, brain, and lives of those who suffer from it, which will result in a therapeutic movement program of healing and management. Her project, “Releasing Trauma through Movement: A Somatic Approach to Embodied Therapies for Healing Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder,” will benefit movement therapists, social workers, somatic psychologists, trauma workers, and the patients they treat.
