  • Psychologist Tom Backer has worked with creative people for more than 35 years, including programs for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers.  This lively, highly-interactive evening focuses on the practical strategies composers and lyricists can use to handle the stresses of their work, both on the business and creative side.

    Questions covered include: What's happening to us physically when we experience stress in our work and lives?  How can exercise, diet and personal practices like meditation help?  How does our genetic heritage influence the way we experience stress?  How does stress influence the creative process, including both creative blocks and creative inspiration?  The seminar also looks at successful approaches to time management and balancing work and personal life.

    Dr. Backer is joined by SCL Board members Vivek Maddala and Adryan Russ who talk about their own personal formulas for dealing with stress, followed by discussion with the audience.

    From Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009.
