Separate fact from fiction with this thoughtful book about the relationship between creativity and mental health—and learn how to find balance without losing inspiration.
Do creativity and mental illness truly go hand in hand, as many people believe, or is that simply a stereotype? Are suffering and deprivation necessary for creative work, or is there a better approach?
Lana Castle draws from research, interviews, surveys, and her own life to examine the relationship between mood disorders and creativity. Drawing from forty-five years of experience in the arts, Castle shares first-hand knowledge, tools, and resources to help both aspiring and professional "creatives" overcome challenges and move forward. Illuminating and inspiring, Castle’s new book helps artists of all types deal with depressive droughts and manic floods. With sensitivity and grace, Castle explains how "creatives" can tap into their talents and recover their lives. With the strategies in this book, you'll learn how to:
• Manage medications and treatment without thwarting creativity
• Find your focus
• Set daily, weekly, and monthly goals
• Grow your self-esteem
• Use your creative talents to generate income
