"Nature's Child" and "The Diplomat": A Cross-Case Study of the Emotional Adjustment Strategies of Two Gifted Students
Haberlin, Steve
Gifted Education International, v34 n3 p271-283 Sep 2018
Scholars have expressed sustained interest in the social-emotional adjustment of gifted children, with conflicting views persisting: one that gifted students possess greater resiliency to environmental stress; the other that this population is more vulnerable. Capitalizing on the few case studies that examined adjustment among gifted students, the researcher conducted a cross-case study of two highly productive fourth-grade students at a K-12 public school. Data were collected throughout the course of a school year and included interviews with students and their parents. Findings included students' relying on strengths to cope with their surroundings and periodically isolating themselves.
