The Five-Headed Dragon: Threats to Giftedness
Gifted youth face many threats to their well-being, both cognitive and emotional, that prevent them from achieve their dreams. We will face five of these threats head on: Stereotype Threat, Imposter Syndrome, Bullying, Underachievement, and Perfectionism.
These threats distort gifted youths’ view of themselves, create hesitancy where boldness is needed, turn victors into victims, deny gifts, and prevent academic risk-taking.
Giving educators and parents the tools they need to ward off the five-headed dragon will allow gifted learners to soar to new heights of personal and academic fulfillment.
