Journal of School Counseling, v7 n1 2009

Gifted students may seek school counselors for help with concerns regarding various aspects of their gifted experience. The purpose of this study was to determine which counseling concerns are experienced by gifted students. While underachievement and identity were not reported to be concerns encountered by 153 participants enrolled in a summer residential program, they did report concerns tied to multipotentiality, social acceptance, perfectionism and fear of failure and over half reported they asked for help on some of the reported concerns they experienced. Findings from this study have implications for school counselors working with gifted students in the academic, career and personal/social domains. (Contains 5 tables.)
