Designed to provide support for the difficult job of parenting and teaching gifted children, "Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students: Helping Kids Cope With Explosive Feelings" provides the resource parents and teachers need to not only understand why gifted children are so extreme in their behavior, but also learn specific strategies to teach gifted children how to live with their intensity. Presented in an easy-to-read, conversational style, "Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students" uses real-world examples through case studies and role-plays that show parents and teachers how to interact with gifted children in a way that teaches them how to recognize, monitor, and adjust their behavior. Worksheets, tip sheets, and checklists are included to help parents, teachers, and the students themselves learn to cope with the explosive feelings that often accompany giftedness. Specific strategies for stress management, underperformance in school, perfectionism, and social anxiety make this a must-read for anyone wishing to make a positive lasting impact on the lives of gifted children.

About the Author:

Christine Fonseca is a school psychologist and award-winning author of nonfiction and teen novels dedicated to helping children and adults find their unique voice in the world, including the books "Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students," "The Girl Guide," and "Quiet Kids." When she isn't crafting new stories or working with student groups, she can be found sipping too many skinny vanilla lattes at her local coffee house.

Review:

"She does give you a manual and it is a very good one." - Gifted Education Communicator

"After 19 years of gifted parenting, I thought I pretty much knew it all. I was so wrong and I learned so much from reading this book! Now that my children are almost grown, I intend to use what I've learned to help other parents." - LJ Conrad, Parent Advocate 

"Fonseca has made a great contribution to helping people understand the unique and too often unmet needs of gifted students." - Holly VanHouten, HUCK Center for Creative Learning
