Description

The Social and Emotional
Development of Gifted Children
remains the only book that provides a
comprehensive summary of the empirical research on the social and emotional
development of gifted children by leading authorities in the field. It includes
several features that make it the leading text on what we know about the social
and emotional development of gifted children. For examples, it summarises the
most significant findings from the empirical research on the topic. It also
includes noteworthy variations that have been observed across cultural groups
or global contexts. Each chapter also provides a short description of the
practical applications that can be made from the research.


This second edition includes an entirely new section on the
psychosocial aspects of talent development, as well as addresses the burgeoning
interest and research base regarding gifted performance. The text also includes
several new topics that have emerged from the research in the past decade, such
as the neuroscience of talent development and motivation for talent
development.
