When a gifted human brain begins firing on all cylinders from a very young age, the social and emotional needs of that child will be different from those of other students. When you understand how G/T students are different, you will begin to develop their strengths, and not just manage their gifted behaviors.

In this 6-hour course, you will learn:

  • The relationship between the intellectual and emotional traits of G/T individuals
  • How to use bibliotherapy and cinema therapy in your classroom
  • How to understand and navigate intensities and overexcitabilities

    This course was so well laid out and the pacing was excellent. The information shared is applicable in my current courses. I loved the resources shared. Examples from existing movies were so on point and clearly communicated the intended message. I saw characteristics of many members of my family as well as my students. I will now analyze challenging students and situations differently and strive to resolve issues by applying the strategies shared in this course.


    I enjoyed this course. Loved how Mrs. Van Gemert utilized movie clips to illustrate characteristics of gifted students and their teachers. I also enjoyed all of the resources she shared throughout the training. I plan to implement some of those resources in my class soon.
