Everyday Creativity and the Healthy Mind: Dynamic New Paths for Self and Society with DR. Ruth Richards

As human beings, we all have creative potential, a quality essential to human development and a vital component to healthy and happy lives. However, this may often remain stifled by the choices we make or ways in which we choose to live in our daily lives. Framed by the “Four Ps of Creativity” – product, person, process, press – this book offers an alternative understanding of the fundamentals of ordinary creativity. Ruth Richards highlights the importance of “process”, circumventing our common preoccupation with the product, or creative outcome, of creativity. By focusing instead on the creator and the creative process, she demonstrates how we may enhance our relationships with life, beauty, future possibilities, and one another. 

This book illustrates how our daily lifestyles and choices, as well as our environments, may enable and allow creativity; whereas environments not conducive to creative flow may kill creative potential. Also explored are questions of ‘normality’, beauty and nuance in creativity, as well as creative relationships.
