or serious reflections about trivial matters
Research has shown that creative behavior is associated with a higher risk for depression. We are a school that tries to enhance creative behaviour, so we are all threatened by depression it seems.
What can we do? Throw a party!!
We commissioned a research on creativity – this so immensely loved word
and what came out:
a link between creative behavior
and mood disorder.
Mood Disorder ?
Although the nature and extent of this relationship
has been debated, a wide range of studies using diverse
methods clearly suggest a connection.
In one of the first studies investigating creative individuals
the research team compared 30 students of Alchimia to a group of police students including
The Alchimia students and their first-degree relatives showed significantly higher rates of affective
disorders, both unipolar and bipolar and some even tripolar.
Indeed, 24 of the 30 Alchimia students were diagnosed with an affective disorder compared
with only 9 of the 30 participants in the control group.
The researchers found that self-reported past depressive symptomatology was linked to increased selfreflective rumination.
So from now on no selfreflective rumination anymore!!!
but only Fun, Fun, Fun
and really serious fun: like cake throwing
cold air ???
What we need is more mood stabilizers such as ……..winterparties and not lithium
we wish you a fantastic Winter Holiday !!!!!
