Imagine That: Using Guided Imagery with Gifted Students to Foster Relaxation, Focus, and Performance

Friday, November 10
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: 209 A

Gifted and creative students have amazing imaginations and mental abilities, but still frequently struggle with stress, concentration, and reduced academic achievement. In this presentation we discuss how the most commonly used and thoroughly researched guided imagery exercises can be used in classroom and counseling settings to engage and motivate gifted and creative students. We show how techniques honed in sports psychology can be applied to academic goal setting and performance, and how to adapt some of the most widely used imagery exercises in counseling to assist students in the classroom to develop focus and manage stress.
