Gifted Support Group: Emotional Freedom Technique

February 15, 2018 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM


Many gifted and talented individuals experience stress. For some, it can be a source of creativity and insight; for others, a limiting force of elevated anxiety. Given the multi potentialities and demands on gifted students, brain-based research has important applications for understanding the impact of stress and anxiety on gifted individuals, illuminating effective strategies to best support academic growth, social and emotional development, and stress management. Additionally, recent research on an innovative, proactive stress management technique, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), has demonstrated a significant reduction in anxiety for gifted students. EFT can be easily incorporated into daily routines, providing gifted youth and those that serve them with greater ease in handling daily tasks, managing hectic schedules and maximizing their potentials. Session attendees will better understand the biological and cognitive effects of stress and anxiety, as well as how to use EFT to counter them.

Speaker will be Dr. Amy Gaessar, Ph.D.
