Keynote #1: “They’re All Going to Find Out I’m a Fraud!” Combatting Impostor Syndrome in the Gifted Brain
Impostor Syndrome is a psychological pattern where a person doubts their fitness, devalues their accomplishments, and fears being “discovered to be fraud.” It is a common pattern in individuals with a gifted brain and can be intensely dysregulating and unpleasant. Impostor Syndrome is created by a maladaptive pattern of cognition and social comparison that can have negative impacts on academic performance, social skills, activity engagement, and self-esteem. This session will define Impostor Syndrome, explore some symptoms of it both internally and externally, and give techniques on how to blunt its impact. Participants will be encouraged to learn how to check their thinking, practice self-compassion, and give themselves credit for the work that they have already done while appreciating the work that is left to do.
Keynote #2: Gifted 101: Spotting Giftedness in the Wild
Gifted (IQ 130+) and Twice-Exceptional (Gifted IQ with a Learning Difference, such as ADHD or Dyslexia) learners often are missed in educational and mental health settings and thus are not connected with appropriate services. Giftedness is largely misunderstood and presents in many different ways, so exploring giftedness and twice-exceptionality as aspects of broader neurodiversity is vital information for parents, teachers, administrators, and counselors.
Breakout Session: Table Top! Developing Psycho-Social Developmental Skills in the Gifted Population
Many gifted children can struggle with the Psycho-Social skills necessary to create and maintain relationships. While many programs exist in schools to develop Psycho-Social Skills, they are often not adapted to the unique needs of the gifted population. This presentation will also demonstrate some techniques on how to teach and model these skills for gifted children through the gamification of the lessons, both through the demonstration of games designed for this population and instructions on how to adapt games to meet this need.
