- This Creativity Handbook explores the different approaches that psychologists have taken in their attempts at understanding the creative process and the creative individual. It begins by defining creativity and dispelling a number of widely held beliefs about creativity. This handbook progresses by explaining the major models of creativity including the psychodynamic, psychometric, personality, systems and problem-solving models of creativity as well as the constraints model and Wallas' Four Step Model of creativity. In an effort to help the reader gain a deeper understanding of the creative process, this handbook follows the creative process of a number of individuals in the realms of literature and visual arts.
