Creativity, mental disorders and their treatment: recovery-oriented psychopharmacotherapy.
This paper discusses interrelations between creativity, mental disorders and their treatment.
The psychology of creativity is very important for successful psychopharmacotherapy, but our knowledge about creativity is still insufficient.
Even that which is known is not within the armamentarium of most practicing psychiatrists.
- In the first part of this article creativity and possible associations between creativity, mental health, and well-being are described.
- The second part deals with the intriguing relationship between creativity and mental disorders.
- The third part emphasizes the role of creativity in the treatment of mental disorders.
This paper ends by underlining the importance of a creativity-enhancing oriented, and personal recovery-focused psychopharmacotherapy in helping psychiatric patients achieve fulfilled and purposeful lives.
