PTSD, Creative Trauma and Rebuilding Your Creative Identity – Diamond Mentor Moment #15 – Genein Letford, M.Ed

June 29, 2021

June is a month for many celebrations but it is also PTSD Awareness Month. I am connecting this awareness to the topic of 'Creative Abuse' that so many people are dealing with in their personal lives and in their workspace.

Many people hold onto an event that was so shaming in their childhood that it changed the way they thought of themselves. It changed their identity. A certain percentage of those people have those events around a creative act.

These 'creativity scars' affect the way we create and interact with others. Our creativity stems from our identity. So if our identity is abused, our creative production will be also. This diamond mentor moment discusses the effect of this and offers some strategies to start rebuilding your creative identity.
