"Understanding the Social and Emotional Lives of Gifted Students" presents a comprehensive treatment of social and emotional development in high-ability learners. The author, a nationally recognized leader in gifted education, discusses theories that guide our examination of the lived experiences of gifted students; social and emotional characteristics and behaviors evidenced in gifted learners; friendships and family relationships that support them; contextual influences that shape their social and emotional lives; and identity development. Moreover, the author examines the complexity of these issues with gifted underachievers, gifted culturally diverse students, and twice-exceptional students. In addition, the book offers a plan for designing a gifted-friendly classroom environment for social and emotional development and a comprehensive collection of resources to support professionals in gifted education research and practice. The author has more than a decade of classroom experience working with K-12 gifted students and almost 20 years in higher education training graduate students and educators. As a result, this book combines theory that drives our understanding of gifted students with the latest research and practical strategies to implement in addressing social and emotional development with K-12 students. The book is geared toward graduate students with research interests in this area and educators with questions regarding how to support gifted young people in their classrooms.

"Drs. Susannah Wood and Jean Peterson have combined forces to move the field of school counseling forward in its work on behalf of gifted students. As a psychologist who has worked in this area for over three decades, I appreciate the wonderful contribution made by this new work. In addition to the wisdom offered in the school counseling domain, I also greatly appreciate the care taken to situate the book and its content into the the profession of school counseling proper. This careful fitting into the standards of the counseling profession, demonstrates how important it is to serve all students in school, including those with gifts and talents. This subtle regularizing into appropriate school counseling practice is actually quite radical as is makes it clear that the time has passed to consider whether we should be concerned with the nature and needs of students with gifts and talents, but rather need to move to serving them as a requirement of our profession. This book makes the case that serving these students to the best of our ability is required of us as professionals. And fortunately for all of us, the authors provide a clearly articulated roadmap for helping us live up to our professional responsibilities." --Tracy L. Cross, Ph.D. "Despite the attention paid to diversity and inclusiveness, counselor education programs often overlook the gifted population, resulting in a training gap that complicates school counselors’ awareness of – and ability to appropriately respond to – the unique needs of gifted individuals. This book appears tailor-made to rectify that oversight. Wood and Peterson have created both a research-informed text counselor educators can seamlessly incorporate into their coursework and a practical manual school counselors may use to improve the services they offer their gifted and talented students." --Christopher Lawrence "'Counseling Gifted and Talented Students in Schools: A Guide for School Counselors' is a very well organized text. There is an excellent balance between theory, research, and practical application. There is a consistent answer to the question of 'what do we do with what we know?' The editors make a compelling case for the importance of the text and for why school counselors must play an active role in the development of gifted students. There is great variation in the social and emotional needs of gifted students and the school counselor has so many of the skills needed to help students understand themselves and develop as effective adults. The editors, Susannah Wood and Jean Sunde Peterson, are nationally recognized for their work and commitment to the counseling needs of gifted students, especially in the school setting. Their insights, respect for the school counselor, and commitment to the growth of students is evident throughout the text. They have chosen authors who share their commitments. This is a text that will be most useful to counselor educators, school counselors and parents. It is always the right time for an important book. Wood and Sunde Peterson have made a significant contribution to both counseling and gifted education." -- Nicholas Colangelo, Ph.D. "...a complete handbook for understanding and meeting the needs of gifted students... This book gets to the essence of the "whole" gifted student and how critical it is to foster not only intellectual and academic growth, but health identity developmental and mental well-being." -- Dan Peters, Ph.D; Licensed Psychologist; Co-founder/Executive Director, SUMMIT CENTER "Counseling Gifted and Talented Students in Schools is a complete handbook for understanding and meeting the needs of gifted students. Combining conceptual foundation, research, and relatable vignettes, Drs. Peterson and Wood teach us everything we need to know about creating gifted programs, identify gifted students, collaborating with educators, and equally if not more critical, understanding the unique developmental needs of gifted students. This book gets to the essence of the "whole" gifted student and how critical it is to not only foster intellectual and academic growth, but health identity developmental and mental well-being." -- Dan Peters, Ph.D; Licensed Psychologist; Co-founder/Executive Director, SUMMIT CENTER Goes beyond academic considerations to address career development and social/emotional concerns Created to fill a gap in both counselor education and gifted education, this is the only up-to-date text to provide a concise and practical overview of counseling services designed specifically for gifted and talented students. Grounded in the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model for counseling programs, the book illuminates specific knowledge, awareness, and skills school counselors need to address concerns related not only to academics, but also to social and emotional development of this population. The text delivers a theoretical and practical overview of gifted and talented education in the US and the responsibilities of school counselors as they pertain to this unique population. Going well beyond the common call to provide academic challenge, the book considers special characteristics of gifted and talented students as it examines the complexities of career development, college readiness, and concerns related to social/emotional development. It discusses how counselors can advocate for gifted students, lead efforts to match programming and needs, and collaborate with school staff and families. Vignettes depicting critical incidents and epitomizing needs are used to illuminate differentiated counseling approaches that support this student population. Each chapter highlights a key concept, and curriculum guidelines and resources for professional development support the text. Key Features: Interweaves school counseling and gifted education research and practice Considers characteristics and counseling concerns associated with giftedness Is based on the ASCA model for counseling programs Examines the complexities of career development, college readiness, and social/emotional development in this population Highlights key concepts and includes vignettes of critical incidents
