Creativity in Public Relations

Green thinks that creative input is inevitably required of the Public Relations practitioners, yet many Public Relations practitioners lack a real understanding of the creative process. This book seeks to address this situation and show the techniques for stimulating and evaluating ideas and obstacles to creativity as described as the five “Is” of the creative process- information, incubation, illumination, integration and illustration. This book explores topics such as techniques for stimulating ideas, ways to evaluate ideas, obstacles to creativity, the creative individual, and the creative organization. It also includes practical examples and research carried out by those in the Public Relations industry who are regarded by their peers as ''creative.''

The SAGE Handbook of Public Relations

Reflecting advances in theory, research, and application in the discipline since the publication of the Handbook of Public Relations in 2001, this new volume is global in scope and unmatched in its coverage of both academic research and professional best practice. Part 1 presents major theories in the words of the leading advocates for each theory. Part 2 features contexts of practice, yet does not ignore theory. Part 3 delves into international themes, as both context and challenge. The book ends with reflections to help us monitor progress and see ways to set our directions anew.
