Creative Dimensions in Suffering is an intriguing combination of psychiatry and spirituality that illustrates the power of creativity to treat suffering. An examination of the lives of many famous artists who suffered—including Van Gogh, Tchaikovsky, and Beethoven—gives insight into how they dealt with their adversity through creativity. Dr. Ghadirian explores how various conditions such as alcoholism, depression, bipolar disorder, and dementia can influence a person’s creative impulse and how creativity and spirituality can help a person deal with trauma. He offers insight into many people, such as Helen Keller, Christopher Reeve, and others who were able to overcome their suffering and emerge victorious over daunting odds. Finally, drawing on principles found in the teachings of the Bahai Faith, Ghadirian attempts to explain suffering, its place in human society, and how it can lead us to a closer, happier relationship with God, as well as a better relationship with ourselves and with others. Indeed, many of those who have suffered the most have found new meaning in the adversity and have emerged victorious.
