Empowering and Powering Down Perfectionism
Dr. Brandi Klepper
Perfectionism can sometimes be problematic, but perfectionism in and of itself is not necessarily negative. The goal is not to eradicate perfectionism, but rather to channel it when it is useful, and let go of it when it isn’t. It is important for parents and educators of gifted kids and teens to understand perfectionism, identify indicators of it, identify when it’s useful and when it isn’t, decrease problematic perfectionism, and promote positive perfectionism. In this session, these themes will be addressed to help aid perfectionistic gifted students in being more balanced and adaptable.

In coordination with Drury Pre-College Programs and The Drury School of Education, the Saturday Enrichment Program - Winterscape seeks to offer gifted and/or high ability students a rich and rewarding learning experience. Modeling best practices in curriculum and instruction, the Pre-College staff works as a community to maximize potential in each student and foster a passion for lifelong learning.

Winterscape will be Saturday, February 23, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. in Lay Hall on Drury Campus. The Saturday program will serve students in grades PreK - 6th grade. Lunch is included in the cost of the class. Depending on success and interest, we hope to serve more grades in the future.
