This book remains the most popular textbook in courses for counseling gifted students. In addition, it has been purchased by many adults who gain greater awareness of what it means to be gifted. Cognitive complexity is usually accompanied by emotional intensity, both of which require different counseling techniques. A developmental model is presented that enables counselors to orchestrate a program of prevention rather than remediation. Specific strategies for individual and group counseling are provided.

Topics include teaching the gifted how to establish positive relationships with peers, cope with their perfectionism, develop ethical leadership skills, and make appropriate career choices.
