Social/Emotional Needs of Gifted GLBTQ Youth: Strategies for Educators and Practitioners

Friday, November 10
1:15 PM - 1:45 PM
Location: 211 A

Navigating adolescence can be difficult for all youth, but identifying as gifted and GLBTQ can complicate even the most positive middle and high school experience. As educators and practitioners working with gifted GLBTQ youth, it is our responsibility to ensure students feel safe in our schools. The presenters are two former school counselors who share resources about the unique socio-emotional needs of gifted GLBTQ students and how those needs may influence their academic and career trajectories. Join us to learn strategies that will positively impact the social and emotional lives of your gifted GLBTQ students.
