Rx for Happiness: The Creativity Cure with Drs. Carrie and Alton Barron
February 3, 2014
Hosted by Kate Ebner
For years, Dr. Carrie Barron and her husband, Dr. Alton Barron, enjoyed helping people feel better through their respective careers as a psychiatrist (Carrie) and orthopedic surgeon (Alton.) However, Carrie and Alton discovered that one treatment many of their patients found essential to their recovery wasn't being prescribed in most doctor's offices: creative activity. Drs. Barron delved into the research and learned that creative action can not only alleviate symptoms of depression, anxiety and other mental and emotional afflictions, but is actually one of the keys to emotional and physical well being. In our increasingly technological world, creative activities are falling ever more by the wayside -- at a cost to our society and to ourselves. Join the Barrons as they share their do-it-yourself Creativity Cure with Host Kate Ebner on February 3 and discover what tapping into your creativity can do for you.
