Critical Conversations about Cognitive Diversity

The Bridges 2e Center for Research and Professional Development is delighted to announce the July premier of Critical Conversations about Cognitive Diversity with Scott Barry Kaufman, a monthly webcast featuring in-depth conversations with the top minds in gifted and twice-exceptional education. Dr. Kaufman, the director of research at the 2e Center, is a prominent voice in the neurodiversity movement and has published broadly about intelligence and creativity, including his books Ungifted and Wired to Create. His most recent book Transcend  reconceives  Maslow’s hierarchy of human needs as a framework to drive self-discovery and actualization.

Dr. Kaufman’s first guest on the webcast, Gail Saltz, is a clinical associate professor of psychiatry at the New York Presbyterian HospitalWeill-Cornell Medical College and a psychoanalyst with the New York Psychoanalytic Institute. A frequent columnist for multiple media outlets, she is the bestselling author of The Power of Different: The Link Between Disorder and Genius and the host of the podcast “Personology.” She is one of the nation’s foremost experts on a variety of psychological and mental health issues, especially those pertaining to stress and anxiety, emotional well-being, relationships, and the mental health aspects of current news. 

Registration opens on June 15. For more details and registration, please see here
