Creativity and Behavior Problems

October 16, 2013

Researchers Kyung Hee Kim and Joyce Van Tassel-Baska report that there’s a relationship between teacher-reported behavioral problems and creative potential in a school-age population of “underachievers.”  We wouldn’t interpret this to mean that every behavioral challenge stems from frustrated creative potential, but we now have some new and positive possibilities to explore instead of converging immediately on a need for external discipline.

How does this possibility begin to shift your attributions of “misbehavior?”  As you expand the possible causes, are your possible solutions also expanding and shifting?
