Webinar: Understanding Overexcitabilities

January 25, 2011

Understanding Overexcitabilities
The Joys and the Challenges

Presented by Susan Daniels, PhD

Overexcitabilites – psychomotor, sensual, intellectual, imaginational and emotional – are often presented as personality traits and behaviors to be managed in terms of interactions at home and at school.
This SENGinar will provide an overview of OEs along with strategies for channeling their expression most positively. Yet, as important, one must consider and understand that it is an overexcitable nature that contributes to the talent development as well as the social-emotional development of gifted children, youth and adults. Overexcitabilities, misunderstood and misinterpreted, can result in inappropriate pathologizing of these qualities – especially in twice exceptional students.
This presentation will focus on the role of overexcitabilities in contributing to the optimal developmental potential of the gifted as grounded in Dabrowski’s Theory of Positive Disintegration.
