About the Author

Jean Sunde Peterson, Ph.D., was a classroom teacher for many years, was involved in teacher education, and developed summer language camps for children prior to her graduate work in counseling and development at the University of Iowa. She is currently on the faculty of the Department of Educational Studies at Purdue University and is the coordinator of school counselor preparation. For the past several years, she has conducted workshops in the areas of underachievement, group interventions for the prevention of problems in children and adolescents, multicultural issues in education, listening skills for teachers, and the social and emotional concerns of high-ability students, all of these areas related to her own practitioner-oriented research. As a licensed mental health counselor, she also continues to be involved in clinical work with children and adolescents.


"Gifted teens have unique social needs but most programs for this population focus on their academic needs. This book remedies that problem by providing discussion guides for 70 topics across 6 categories: identity, stress, relationships, feelings, family, and the future. Helpful activitiy sheets and an extensive list of resources by subject are also included." --Curriculum Connections, a supplement of School Library Journal

"The Essential Guide is a valuable resource for youth workers who may have gifted students and need more information or perspective on their unique needs."
--Youthworker Journal
