Living with Intensity: Understanding the Sensitivity, Excitability, and the Emotional Development of Gifted Children, Adolescents, and Adults.
Parents, teachers, and counselors often describe sensitivity and intensity as hallmark traits of gifted children. Kazimerz Dabrowski identified five forms of mental functioning (psychomotor, sensual, intellectual, imaginational, and emotional), called overexcitabilities (OEs), that contribute to the developmental potential of the gifted. This webinar provides an introduction to the OEs that gifted children experience and provides strategies to assist caregivers in approaching the dynamics of overexcitabilities from a positive and proactive perspective.
