Dr Gail Post

Building resilience in gifted children

What is resilience? Why is it important? And how can your gifted child or student build more of it?


  • How do you know if your child or student needs to build resilience?
  • What is the interplay between individual, family and school factors that either enhance or complicate resilience-building?
  • How does giftedness or twice-exceptionality impact the child’s resilience-building capacities?
  • What are some basic guidelines and tools you can use to help your child or student improve their resilience?

Bring your questions, concerns, and personal wisdom to this workshop as we explore the many aspects of resilience-building and how you can help your gifted child or student.
