1)"Aninvaluable action guide to creating opportunities for greater joy, purpose, andmeaning through self-expression."-- "Library Journal"
The Creativity Cure is a most welcome addition to the literature on personal and relationship transformation. From working with several thousand couples over the years, Kathlyn and I have become strong proponents of creativity for the transformation of relationships. The same is true for personal transformation: creativity is often the missing piece, the absence of which has been sending distress signals in the form of anxiety and depression. The Drs. Barron have done a marvelous job in bringing this often-hidden factor to light. I highly recommend that you read this book.--Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., author of Conscious Living and coauthor with Dr. Kathlyn Hendricks, of Conscious Loving "Library Journal"
