Pursuing creativity seems to lead to a life more fraught with anxiety and depression, so new understandings of mental health need to be accepted. Listen in to learn: When creatives are most susceptible to addiction What can get in the way of effective coaching The most challenging aspects of the coaching Dr. Eric Maisel provides Dr. Eric Maisel, the author of more than 50 books, shares his work researching the relationship between a creative lifestyle and mental health disorders. People have often misunderstood individuals' lifestyles and mental states in a creative profession, leading to misdiagnosis of mental health disorders and laundry lists of ineffective treatments. In addition, a built-up misunderstanding of mental health treatments has left a void of adequate resources for those seeking treatment to go to. Many people hold the misconception that highly talented people must be high achieving in every area of their lives. Due to this, creative people face scrutiny and pressure that have more severe consequences than those posed to others. Visit ericmaisel.com to learn more.

Eric Maisel - The Power of a Daily Practice To Meet Any Goal (and get stuff done!)

Untangle

Eric Maisel is a psychotherapist, teacher, coach, and author. His most recent book is called The Power of Daily Practice: How Creative and Performing Artists (and Everyone Else) Can Finally Meet Their Goals. The idea is that a Daily Practice is a muscle that can be acquired and can lead to genuine accomplishments. Meditation is one daily practice, but this book talks about 18 different practices for the many different parts of our lives and it includes the necessary elements of a practice…like self-discipline, self-direction, and devotion, and the many challenges we can, in fact, overcome to optimize our practices. Lots of great food for thought!

Dr. Eric Maisel on how know you (and your work) matter

Find Your Voice: How to Write When You're Not a Writer

Do you feel like you matter? Like—really matter? If you do feel like you matter, how do you know? Today’s guest is a man who argues that one way to know that we matter—really know—is to do a thing that we tell you to do all the time: it’s to write. But not just write. It’s to have a daily practice of creativity (like writing) that brings you back to this conclusion everyday: I matter. My words matter. Dr. Eric Maisel, the author of over 50 books, renowned coach to creatives, a columnist for Psychology Today and mental health advocate. His latest book The Power of Daily Practice teaches artists and creative people how to overcome blockages so they can finally meet their goals. So if you’re sure you’re an artist or a writer but you keep thinking to yourself that you don’t have the “discipline” to follow-through on your creative dreams, you aren’t going to want to miss what Eric has to share with you today. Maybe more discipline isn’t what you need at all. As for what you do need… well, let’s get into the conversation. ericmaisel.com/books

#33: What is Medicine? — Dr. Eric Maisel

Redeeming Disorder

Eric Maisel is a psychotherapist, a PhD in counseling psychology, a creativity coach, and the author of over fifty published books. While I first discovered him through his “Rethinking Mental Health” blog for Psychology Today, his education and work in the field span back far before that — far before I was diagnosed with depression at ten years old, and far before I was born. Eric questions what he terms the “mental disorder paradigm,” and broaches controversial questions most would rather avoid: Does mental illness actually exist? Are SSRIs medicine, or rather just “chemicals with strong effects?” What is medicine? We addressed the first of those questions in a conversation with Eric back in 2017, and in this interview, I join Eric in-person in San Francisco to dig into the second question. Finally, on the eve before I journey into the Amazon to work with Ayahuasca, I share some reflections of mine on the third question. In this episode of Redeeming Disorder, those questions all prove to be fascinating launching pads into a discussion of labels, language, institutional (and psychiatric) authority, meaning-making and life purpose.
