Using Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practices with Gifted Populations
Sharp, Jennifer E.; Niemiec, Ryan M.; Lawrence, Christopher
Gifted Education International, v33 n2 p131-144 May 2017
Mindfulness and character strengths are synergistic tools that work together to cultivate well-being. Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice (MBSP) combines the research and practice of these constructs to enhance well-being, meaning, and engagement. In this article, research supporting how mindfulness and character strengths may benefit the gifted population is explored. Particular attention is devoted to exploring practical implications for the integration of mindfulness and character strengths together and the application to support gifted students and their teachers/parents. MBSP provides a promising avenue for addressing some of the unique challenges inherent in working with gifted students.
