About this item

Fonseca, a school psychologist, consultant, parenting coach, and trainer, provides parents and educators with a manual to help gifted children cope with emotional intensity. She describes aspects of giftedness, including common characteristics, potential problems, the role of overexcitabilities and emotional intensity, and other factors; coping strategies for use at home and school; and how to change from an authoritative parenting approach to a more coaching-oriented approach to help with relationship, performance, and behavioral issues. This edition has been revised and updated to incorporate a new chapter on addressing temperament and personality development; expanded role-plays and strategies for interacting and guiding children in a way that teaches them how to recognize, monitor, and adjust their behavior; and updated resources and worksheets. It has more emphasis on strategies for the home setting and expands sections on twice-exceptional children, the impact of cultural and gender issues, and recent research on social and emotional needs.
