Training Course Syllabus:


"Getting" Gifted: Best Practices and Current Research in Helping the Gifted and Twice-Exceptional to Thrive by Mika Gustavson

PROGRAM DETAILS

The term twice-exceptional or "2e" is used to describe a gifted person who also has special needs, such as ADHD, learning disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Sensory Processing Disorders, physical disabilities or significant identifiable emotional disabilities. Approximately 8-11 percent of the US student population (K-12) is recognized as academically gifted, with an estimated 2-5 percent of those students fitting the criteria for twice-exceptionality. And, considering that giftedness may be undetected in a large number of 2e individuals, the true number of gifted students is likely even higher than these statistics indicate. Sadly, gifted individuals, whose contributions to the increasingly complex issues of our world could be highly valuable, often lack the understanding and support needed to fully realize their potential. In fact, many gifted individuals struggle with social, emotional and educational challenges which arise as a direct result of being gifted. The environments in which they have to function are also rife with myth and misunderstanding about what it means to be gifted, leading to inappropriate expectations. Gifted children, their families and gifted adults have special needs and concerns which routinely go unrecognized or misdiagnosed, often with disastrous results.

This one-day seminar will offer information based on best practices and the most current research findings in the field, allowing attendees to develop familiarity with each theory's application in clinical, parental and educational settings. Additionally, the seminar will provide participants with a thorough grounding in Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration. Kazimierz Dabrowski was a Polish psychologist and physician who studied the development of gifted individuals and whose comprehensive studies and discussions are only now becoming available in English. Using case studies and vignettes, participants will gain an understanding of common issues facing today's gifted population. Particular attention will be paid to supporting the social and emotional functioning of the gifted and twice-exceptional, including diagnosis, testing and multi-disciplinary collaboration for the purpose of creating a robust support system that will allow the gifted to flourish.
 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • Identify and foster excellence in gifted children and adults in your clinical practice, classroom, workplace and family
  • Interpret problem behaviors correctly and intervene effectively when giftedness creates challenges
  • Understand principles of gifted development throughout the lifespan and apply them in real world situations
  • Create cross-disciplinary connections that will support optimal development for gifted students and clients
  • Define giftedness and twice-exceptionality and recognize the importance of nurturing this population
  • Apply Dabrowskian Theory in interactions with clients, students and family members
  • List the comorbid conditions that commonly occur with giftedness
  • Identify potential twice-exceptionality in your clients and/or students
  • Recognize frequent features of twice-exceptionality and what to do to bring out the best in these individuals
  • Describe and understand the experience of being gifted or twice-exceptional
  • Differentiate between pathology and asynchronous development in gifted and twice-exceptional individuals
  • Discover effective ways to work with common issues for gifted individuals, including real-life case examples
  • Demonstrate comprehension and application of the data from neuropsychological testing
  • Discuss current literature and research findings on working with gifted children


What You Should Bring: Participants are encouraged to bring their own case questions regarding gifted children, families and adults.

 

ABOUT THE PRESENTER

MIKA GUSTAVSON, MFT, a counselor and gifted specialist, has over 20 years of experience in the mental health field. In her private practice, she focuses on providing counseling and support services to gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) children and adults as well as working with sensory sensitivities and educational choices for children. Prior to opening her private practice, Mika worked as the staff psychotherapist at the Community Psychotherapy Institute. There, she specialized in twice-exceptional and gifted children as well as those with sensory processing issues. In addition, she has been a therapist and assistant director of a therapeutic daycare center which served the needs of SED preschoolers and the owner of Secure Beginnings, a parenting education and infant development center, where she provided a variety of educational support services to parents and caregivers. Mika received a bachelor's degree with honors and distinction from Stanford University. She earned her master's degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco and is a clinical member of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists. Mika has published articles on twice-exceptionality and giftedness for both the 2e Newsletter and the National Association for Gifted Children of the United Kingdom. She is also co-authoring a book about educational options for gifted children, as well as several other articles of interest to the gifted, twice-exceptional and educational communities. Her dedication to working with giftedness and twice exceptionality comes not only from her clinical experience and educational background, but also from her own experiences as the parent of a 2e child. Thus, for professional and personal reasons, Mika is passionate about helping gifted individuals and their families find solutions in order to reach their full individual potential for happy, productive lives.
