Anxiety and Perfectionism in the Gifted Child

  • February 25, 2020
  • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Science and Arts Academy, Des Plaines

Many gifted students show a strong tendency towards perfectionism, which can further increase their anxiety and stress stress levels. Psychologist Dr. David N. Hunt and our school counselor Carolyn Manley will explore the difference between healthy ambition and unhealthy perfectionism. They will address the signs and symptoms of anxiety and teach parents strategies for helping children cope.
