Creativity and Psychotherapy
Creativity and Psychotherapy

Quote:By creation of personality attributes and structure, I mean something directly analogous to creation in the prototypical areas of the arts and sciences. As in the latter areas, there is also in psychotherapy the produc­tion of both the new and the valuable. The patient develops better person­ality attributes and structure—these are valuable both to the patient and to society at large. Moreover, these personality features are new to the patient because they result in part from a break with the past. Because they are unique to that individual, as all actively developed attributes intrinsically are, they are new to the world as well.
