Leslie Cardell, LCSW, a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in Manhattan, talks about creativity, creative blocks and her experience working with this issue in her private practice. She discusses concepts such as internal and external audience, disowned self and aggression as they relate to creativity. In addition to being a psychotherapist, Leslie has a background as an actor and teacher of acting.
Some resources regarding this topic include: Understanding Writer’s Block: A Therapist’s Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment by Martin Kantor. Two websites that offer information about creativity and creative blocks are creatingminds.org and creativity-portal.com. Please note that I found these resources in an information search prior to this interview and do not have enough information to offer them as specific recommendations - but they do look interesting.

In December 2006 I was asked by a client of mine, Cynthia, to record an interview with her about her experience on and after September 11th, 2001. The interview took place at the Story Corps booth in Grand Central Station. Story Corps, if you are not familiar with it, is a wonderful and free not-for-profit service that anyone can use to document through interviews their relationships and life experience. To learn more about Story Corps, please see their website at www.storycorps.net/
Cynthia asked me to interview her because her physical and mental health had been catastrophically affected by the 911 terrorist attack. She felt a witnessing like this might help her to heal. She hoped too that other trauma survivors who heard her story might feel less alone. This edition of Psych1on1 is that Story Corps interview with Cynthia in its entirety. Please note that it is not a psychotherapy session. It is a witnessing. Some portions will be difficult to listen to. Listener discretion is advised.
