Embodied creativity training: Effects on creative self-efficacy and creative production (scientific paper)

This paper presents a study on the effect of a new program of embodied creativity training on the trainees’ creative self-efficacy and creative production.

In the training program 180 trainees were trained for 39 hours over a period of nine weeks. Trainee’s creative self-efficacy and creative production (originality, elaboration and fluency) were tested pre and post of the training. One month after the program finished, representatives of trainees and all trainers were interviewed in order to develop a qualitative understanding of the effects and potential improvements of the training program.

The results show a significant increase in creative self-efficacy as well as in creative production. Implications for embodied creativity training are discussed in the paper.
