Vulnerabilities of Academically Gifted Students.
Pfeiffer, Steven I.; Stocking, Vicki B.
Special Services in the Schools, v16 n1-2 p83-93 2000
Gifted students and youth possess a set of personality characteristics that make them uniquely vulnerable. School personnel and parents need to be aware of these risk factors so that they can provide coordinated educational and social opportunities to foster resilience. They must also be ready to offer preventive and therapeutic mental health interventions if actual psychological problems develop. (Author/JDM)
