Episode 016: Sports Psychology and Art, Training the Artistic Mind, with Ana was released on the Back to the Drawing Board podcast on Monday, July 30, 2018.
Do artists need sports psychologists? Can the 'troubled artist' sort out their psychological stuff and still create great work?
I sat down with my one and only sister, Ana, to chat about her Master's research looking at the relationship between sports psychology and music. We chat about why psychology is not a thing in the arts, why we need it and how we can get started today.
For those interested in the psychology for performing artists, or looking for psychotherapy for musicians, you're sure to appreciate Ana's perspective. Addressing mental health and coaching, this episode advocates that artists treat their career the way athletes do!
Did you know that since this episode released Ana has returned on the podcast? This time her and I sat down to chat about our experience with art education as we were growing up. Take a listen!
