Synopsis

Creativity The Ultimate Teen Guide by Aryna Ryan

While many teens find it easy to express themselves through any number of creative outlets--singing, drawing, writing, or playing a musical instrument--not all young adults are able to readily access their talents. Even worse, some teens are convinced--either by themselves or others--that they don't have any creative ability at all. They never think to challenge this assumption and as a result, miss out on the pleasures and rewards that tapping into their creative reserves might generate. In Creativity: The Ultimate Teen Guide, Aryna Ryan helps teens remove the barriers to being creative. This book explains what creativity is and what it isn't, and asserts that everyone--including teens of all ages--are creative beings. Chapters in this book cover - myths of creativity, - creativity assessment, - the role of creativity in happiness, - the Creative Problem Solving process, and - creative brainstorming techniques. Most important, this book offers ways in which teens and those close to them can cultivate creativity. Teens will also learn how to maximize their creative possibilities and resist impulses and individuals that crush creativity. With insights into how teens have the potential to be the most creative people of all, along with a list of resources that can help them, Creativity: The Ultimate Teen Guide is a unique book that young adults and their families will find invaluable.

Reviews

Gr 10 Up-Though many people assume that only certain segments of the population possess creativity, Ryan dispels this myth, asserting that this trait is an essential key to establishing one's identity and achieving self-actualization. It is important to note that this book is not a guide on how to be creative, because, as Ryan emphasizes, innovation cannot be taught. Instead, she focuses on how to overcome barriers and provides insight into what constitutes creativity. The writing is appealing and accessible, and the information is extensive, with plenty of suggested resources. The multitude of quotes from teenagers should be very helpful. . . .This is a compelling and valuable work. VERDICT A strong addition to . . . collections. * School Library Journal *
