Description

Emotion-Focused Support for the Gifted Child

Please join us for an evening to explore the unique and complex emotional world of gifted children! Presented to you by the Surrey Gifted and Gifted/LD Parents Association.

Gifted children have unique ways of processing, experiencing, and reacting to emotions. The intensity of their emotional experiencing can lead to great joy, but also great challenges. They are clever, intuitive, and reflective children, with active minds and imaginations. There is an intensity in all aspects of how they engage in the world, especially in how they understand and feel emotions. Their profound capacity for emotions can often lead to big worries, difficulties with transitions, and "meltdowns."

This workshop will provide a foundation of understanding, and practical skills and Emotion-Focused techniques that will empower parents when met with tough situations. Parents will also be supported to identify, work through, and overcome many obstacles that can surface throughout the journey of parenting a gifted child.

The evening will begin with refreshments and meet & greet, followed by the District Helping Teacher with an introduction to services available for gifted children.

Alison Bell will then present the workshop which will be followed by a brief Q&A period.


Cost is by donotion @ the door ($20 Suggested)


We hope you will join us!
