Designed to provide support for the difficult job of parenting and
teaching gifted children, Emotional
Intensity in Gifted Student: Helping Kids Cope With Explosive Feelings
provides the resource parents and teachers need to not only understand why
gifted children are so extreme in their behaviour, but also learn specific
strategies to teach gifted children how to live with their intensity.
Presented in an easy-to-read, conversational style, Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students
uses real-world examples through case studies and role-plays that show parents
and teachers how to interact with gifted children in a way that teachers them
how to recognise, monitor and adjust their behaviour.
Worksheets, tip sheets and checklists are included to help
parents, teachers and the students themselves learn to cope with the explosive
feelings that often accompany giftedness. Specific strategies for stress
management, underperformance in school, perfectionism and social anxiety make
this a must-read for anyone wishing to make a positive lasting impact on the
lives of gifted children.
