About The Creative Mind

by Douglas Eby
March 5, 2012

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.

Douglas Eby has a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology, and is a writer and researcher on the psychology of creative expression and personal growth, with over twenty years of writing, research and publishing experience.

Creator of the Talent Development Resources series of sites, he has interviewed many artists, psychologists and others about creative expression.

He is author of the book Developing Multiple Talents – The personal side of creative expression.

The Creative Mind is also available by subscription in the Kindle Store.
