about

Creative people will experience depressionthat’s a given. It’s a given because they are regularly confronted by doubts about the meaningfulness of their efforts. Theirs is a kind of depression that does not respond to pharmaceutical treatment. What’s required is healing in the realm of meaning.

In this groundbreaking book, Eric Maisel teaches creative people how to handle these recurrent crises of meaning and how to successfully manage the anxieties of the creative process. Using examples both from the lives of famous creators such as van Gogh and from his own creativity coaching practice, Maisel explains that despite their inevitable difficulties, creative people possess the ability to forge relationships, repair themselves, and find meaning in their work and their lives. Maisel presents a step-by-step plan to help creative people handle their special brand of depression and rediscover the reasons they are driven to create in the first place.
Licensed Psychotherapist Eric Maisel earned a B. A., M. A., and Ph.D. in psychology, as well as a M. A. in creative writing. After he failed as a novelist, Maisel wrote three books about creative difficulties: "Treating the Muse,""Affirmations for the Artist," and "A Life in the Arts."
