This book describes The Artistic Theory of Psychology, in which a dominant focus is on the successful creative artist and mental health. However, the book also describes the relationship of the creative artist to mental disturbance in various contexts, including an innovative academic treatment, personal experiential essays written by the author, excerpts related to the author’s semi-autobiographical novel, and illustrative blog excerpts from the author’s struggling actor son. The main theme of the book is that through humanistic supportive environments for creative artists, the phenomenon of the successful creative artist in the context of success in both one’s creative artistic endeavors as well as a satisfactory adjustment to day-to-day life, can be nourished and enhanced.

After reading Dr. Benjamins book on Modern Religions,it prompted more of an interest in the writings of Dr. Benjamin, therefore, I read his book The Creative Artist, Mental Disturbance, and Mental health. Once again, I was not disappointed, in that Dr. Benjamin gives a very unique view of perhaps many that would normally be viewed as mentally disturbed, having the ability to bring their Artistic talents to fruition. Once again an Excellent read!
