BHVS400 The Psychology of Creativity and Ingenuity
This course presents the psychology of out of the box thinking and coloring outside the lines. As Albert Einstein said, "you cannot solve problems with the same thinking that created them." Most of us would say that we were creative as children, but what happened? This course provides a variety of methods for energizing creativity, as well as providing tools to work with individuals and groups to solve problems with fresh perspectives and limited resources. The psychological concept of re-framing, as well as looking at the same thing as other people and seeing something different, will be the cornerstone of this learning experience. Students learn to make work engaging, fun and uplifting, re-kindling the child within spirit of creativity we were all born with and harnessing that brain power for practical organization purposes. These are times that call for creativity and ingenuity.
