This session examines the inner and outer lives of gifted students through the lens of Pearson’s (1986) archetypal framework outlined in The Hero Within and provides connections to superheroes presented in popular media. Each of the six archetypes is presented with both a task and a gift. Specific advice and strategies to help support gifted students is provided for each archetype.

Perfectionism

Social emotional issues are one of the most requested topics we receive and understandably so. Who better to learn how to help those struggling with social emotional issues like perfectionism from than the Gifted Guru herself, Lisa Van Gemert?  Lisa provides a realistic, practical, do-able guide to managing “never good enough” perfectionism.
