In my estimation Giftedness 101 ranks high among authoritative texts devoted to this particular population of children. It not only offers thorough experience and knowledge-based insights to those who are already or are contemplating serving the social emotional needs of these children in the future, but also those who profess to educate future teachers, those who would venture out into classrooms charged with the teaching and many others besides. It should be required reading for politicians - especially those who shape educational policy."--Gifted and Talented International "Linda Silverman is an articulate, insightful, authoritative, and extremely "gifted" international expert in the assessment of giftedness...[She] has created a gem with Giftedness 101. The fields of psychology and education should welcome this vibrant book with open arms." Alan S. Kaufman, PhD Yale Child Study Center School of Medicine "This is a really terrific book! I'm really impressed at how much information has been packed into it, how accessible it is (without talking down to the audience), and how well the author has parsed the many key issues in the world of giftedness. Parents and mental health professionals with find this book incredibly useful. I look forward to sharing it far and wide. I think it is a book that was badly needed and will really fill a niche." Corin Goodwin CEO & Executive Director, Gifted Homeschoolers Forum This is the most thorough history, explanation, and call to action for gifted advocates you will find."--Laughing at Chaos Blog What is giftedness? Is it the potential for success or is it the experience of being an "outsider"? This book addresses the unique psychological needs of gifted children, which are often manifested as "feeling different," and examines special issues such as gifted children with learning disabilities, gender considerations, implications of socio-economic status, and more. Giftedness 101 dispels common myths about giftedness and challenges the view that eminence is the true signifier of giftedness. It offers specific guidelines to psychologists, parents, and teachers; describes comprehensive assessment of the gifted; provides support for the twice exceptional; and focuses on the complex inner world of the gifted. The book defines giftedness as a psychological reality with powerful ramifications throughout the lifespan. Giftedness 101 will be a valuable, eye-opening resource for psychologists, educators, and other professionals who work with the gifted, as well as gifted individuals and their families.

"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
