The Creative Mind explores some of the psychological topics that can affect how well or how freely people are able to express themselves creatively – both professional artists and anyone who wants to develop and express their creative abilities.
A number of personality and mental health topics are included, such as motivation, identity, sensitivity, consciousness and mood. These topics may relate to anyone, of course, but can have particular meaning for creative people.
Current information from psychology research is referenced, along with personal experiences and perspectives of writers, actors, designers and other artists.
