Have you ever felt more like a counselor than a teacher when working with your gifted students? Do you ever feel stuck when talking to gifted students individually about their social or emotional issues? If you answered YES to either of these questions, then this session is meant for you! Presenters share basic school counseling strategies to address some of the most prevalent social and emotional concerns of gifted students. Participants have the opportunity to practice these skills and share personal situations with two seasoned school counselors who have extensive experience working with gifted students.
