Changes in Emotional Resilience: Gifted Adolescent Females.
Kline, Bruce E.; Short, Elizabeth B.
Roeper Review, v13 n3 p118-21 Apr 1991
The study, with 89 gifted girls in grades 1-12, found decreased self-regard, self-confidence, inner courage, and self-assurance with increased age. Levels of perfectionism, hopelessness, discouragement, and emotional vulnerability rose with increasing age. Findings suggest the need for strong identity information and models and the encouragement of emotional stability and life direction. (Author/DB)
