Winterscape Free Parent Workshop
Critical Thinking and Executive Functioning
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.
