Philip Kenney

If you’re a writer, or an artist, or composer. Or really anyone doing something creative, you might have been filled at one time with self doubt. It’s very common for even the most successful artists to feel they’re just not good enough. And this can hamper their creativity, sometimes to the point of paralysis.

Our News Indepth guest today, Philip Kenney, has written a new book on how to navigate your way out of this mind-set. It’s called The Writer’s Crucible: Meditations on Emotion, Being, and Creativity. Philip is a Portland-based writer and psychotherapist, who, over the past 30 years of practice, has treated a number of people going through the emotions and stresses of the creative life. And he’s personally experienced it in his own work as an author.

Listen in as Philip talks about his book, describes the positive aspects of the writer's crucible, and suggests several ways to help overcome self-doubt.
