Gifted children and adults are frequently misdiagnosed, particularly those who are twice-exceptional (2e).
This much-anticipated second edition of a best-selling book is your guide to help prevent that.
Some of our brightest, most creative children and adults are misdiagnosed as having behavioral or emotional disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, or Asperger’s Disorder.
Many receive unneeded medications and/or inappropriate counseling. How can this happen?
“We can’t expect to solve our problems if all we do is tear each other down. You can disagree with a certain policy without demonizing the person who espouses it…It undermines democratic deliberation." '
Instructor Ann Rea continues: "My mission is to eliminate the disrespectful and destructive 'starving artist' myth by inviting you to join a growing community of Artists Who THRIVE - who secure their creative freedom through business savvy."
Creative giftedness is different from intellectual giftedness * Emotional health for creative, gifted, highly sensitive people * Gifts and challenges of being highly sensitive
"If I'm with a group of people, I'm okay, but actually I'm quite a nervous person if I'm just one-to-one with somebody." Jenna Coleman
