ABOUT THE PROGRAM Social-Emotional Learning 101: Everything you need to know to help gifted kids develop into well-adjusted and caring adults

Recognizing the importance of social-emotional considerations in the lives of successful gifted and talented children and youth is crucial.  Dr. Pfeiffer will discuss the concept of “strengths of the heart;” how character strengths and virtues, emotional intelligence, and social skills can make a real difference in the well-being and psychological health of gifted children. The workshop will include discussions on the neuroscience of well-being and social-emotional skill development applicable to the classroom, including activities and skills which can be used to develop/enhance soft skills. There will be opportunity for audience interaction and Q&A on social-emotional learning and networking with colleagues from across Kentucky.
