Renati, Roberta; Bonfiglio, Natale Salvatore; Pfeiffer, Steven – Gifted Education International, 2017
The research on families of the gifted is extremely limited.

Few studies, however, have examined the impact of gifted children on the lives of…

Proyer, René T.; Gander, Fabian; Tandler, Nancy – Gifted Education International, 2017
Positive psychology has revived psychology's abandoned interest in the study of morally positively valued traits (the so-called character strengths) and virtues.
