Creative Adaptability: A Measurable Personal Resource

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/Debate


This paper presents a succinct overview of the psychodramatic origins of Creative Adaptability, a novel concept that refers to people’s ability to respond creatively and adaptively to stressful and/or changed situations. This is followed by a discussion of the theoretical framework of creative adaptability and the psychometrics of the 9-item self-report creative adaptability scale. An overview of recent data suggests that creative adaptability significantly correlates with creative self-efficacy, openness to experience, and spontaneity, and predicts well-being in turbulent times. Future research directions are noted.
