Webinar on Social and Emotional Needs of Gifted Students

Register today for SIG's upcoming Person of Significance Series Webinar:

Do gifted children really have special social and emotional needs?

A widespread myth about gifted children is that, because they are bright, they can simply “make it on their own.” However, the characteristics of gifted children—combined with current educational practices—often put them “at risk.” The social, emotional, and interpersonal needs of gifted/talented children can result in significant problems if these children are not understood and nurtured. This webinar describes how characteristics of gifted children relate to their social/emotional needs, interpersonal and emotional styles, and frequent difficulties. This information will help parents and teachers understand why gifted/talented children experience peer difficulties, underachieve, challenge or rebel against traditions, or show patterns of perfectionism or depression.

Presenter: James T. Webb, Ph. D
Founder and Director Emeritus, Supporting Emotional Needs of Gifted
Former Professor and Associate Dean, Wright State University School of Professional Psychology
President, Great Potential Press, Inc.

Suggested donation for this webinar is $30.
