"Maisel intimately understands the anxieties of the creative process and the psychological landscape that artists inhabit. Strong on the psychology, he is equally strong on practicalities." -- The Writer Magazine

Are you a painter, writer, actor, dancer, musician, or would-be creative? Are you stuck in the process of creating and sharing your art?
In Unleashing the Artist Within, Eric Maisel, PhD offers lessons, anecdotes, and real-life case studies that will help you unlock your creative powers. Dr. Maisel focuses on the reality of artistic development, explaining that unfinished and disappointing works are not a matter of personal weakness or unfortunate circumstances; they are simply daily occurrences in the lives of imaginative people. His twelve lessons demonstrate how to recover from dashed hopes and restore lost meaning. Helpful exercises show how to work through the process, managing the daily grind and pushing past everyday resistance.
