Different By Design

Different by Design: Moving from Feeling Defective to Being Distinctive

presented by Sharon Barnes, MSSW, LCSW, Therapist For Sensitive And Gifted

Location: Stonegate Village Metropolitan District, 10326 Stonegate Pkwy, Parker, CO 80134

Gifted and 2E / Twice Exceptional students often notice early on that they’re different than others. This can lead many GT/2E kids to draw a secret inner conclusion that there is something essentially wrong with themselves.  This can be the hidden link to many of the emotional and behavior problems common to gifted and 2E kids and teens - emotional meltdowns, verbal outbursts, hitting, kicking, punching AKA violence, going silent, underachievement, discouragement and despair. In this session, you will learn four stages of discouragement; how to identify discouragement before it takes over; and four stages of overcoming discouragement. We’ll also share powerful tools to help parents and teachers help their GT and 2E students overcome their discouragement and develop their true distinctiveness and make their unique creative contributions.

Gifted Guru - Updated Location

The Gifted Guru

Due to the overwhelming response, the venue has been changed to accommodate more participants.  See new location below!

Nationally known GT speaker, Lisa Van Gemert, will present her program, "Emoting 101" for Douglas County GT parents and community members. This is our annual joint program with the Douglas County School District's GT office.

The workshop will focus on embracing the idea that gifted children need to be seen as whole people, not merely a high-ability brain leading parents through the fundamentals of what research tells us about the importance of emotional intelligence and how we can build it. Using contemporary studies and pertinent anecdotes, this workshop will have parents learning more about themselves and their child.

Lisa is an educator, speaker and mom of gifted kids.
