Designed for practitioners who work with the gifted, this volume is intended to serve as a practical and easy-to-use resource for working with gifted students, their teachers, and their parents and families. It provides timely, practical, evidence-based techniques and guidelines to help these practitioners better help an underserved group. The book is written in a user-friendly style that makes this a quick, simple, and easy reference. Topics covered include identification and assessment of gifted students; important information for understanding the needs of the gifted; counseling and psychotherapy strategies; career counseling for gifted and talented students; methods for working with the families of the gifted; and legally-correct and ethically-smart counseling techniques. An accompanying CD will contain valuable resources such as PowerPoint presentations and reproducible handouts and forms.


"In this book, Dr. Pfeiffer has made a significant contribution to all professionals who are brought into serving the unique needs of gifted individuals. While giftedness is admired by society, it is ironic that professionals in all fields (except elite sports) are not formally trained to enhance the competencies of the gifted. Society has adopted a "laissez faire" attitude towards the gifted, believing that they will know how to get by and thrive on their own. Dr. Pfeiffer challenges that belief system and encourages and teaches us how to improve our own skills to better serve the gifted." - Marilyn B. Benoit, MD, Chief Clinical Officer and SVP Clinical &Professional Affairs, Devereux; Past President, American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
