Creativity and Addiction
An Essential Webinar for Coaches & Creatives
Creative and performing artists are at greater risk for addiction than is the general population. These additional risk factors include the stresses associated with exerting and retaining individuality, dealing with high energy and large appetites, handling powerful meaning and purpose challenges, the idealization of addiction as a spur to creativity, and competing in the crowded art and performance marketplaces.
In this lively, information-packed one-hour webinar, Dr. Eric Maisel, America’s foremost creativity coach and the author of 50+ books, including Creative Recovery (co-authored with Dr. Susan Raeburn), describes in detail these special risk factors, the equally important strengths that creatives bring to the recovery process, and what a recovery program for creative and performing artists can look like. If you’re a creative yourself or if you work with creatives, this powerful, low-cost webinar is not to be missed!
