EMOTIONAL INTENSITY IN GIFTED CHILDREN: HELPING KIDS COPE WITH EXPLOSIVE FEELINGS
2016 TAGT Legacy Book Award Recipient
Teaching children how to manage their intense emotions is one of the most challenging aspects of parenting or educating gifted children. Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students provides a much-needed resource for parents and educators to understand why gifted children are so extreme in their behavior and how to manage the highs and lows that accompany emotional intensity. Presented in an easy-to-read, conversational style, this revised and updated second edition contains additional chapters addressing temperament and personality development, as well as expanded role-plays and strategies designed to show parents and teachers how to interact and guide gifted children in a way that teaches them how to recognize, monitor, and adjust their behavior.
