Creative folks have a special relationship to the thing usually called “depression.” Vincent van Gogh, the icon of the tortured artist, cut off his own ear, and spun out of control in his own depression. Are all creative people, who seek to find meaning in their work-destined to end up like van Gogh? Not at all.
Come join Dr. Eric Maisel, America’s foremost creativity coach, psychotherapist, retired family therapist, and the author of more than 50 books (among them The Van Gogh Blues, The Future of Mental Health, Rethinking Depression, and Coaching the Artist Within) as he explains the nature of this special relationship – and what creatives can do to better deal with what for many is a constant background coloration of the blues.
