GIFTED PSYCHOLOGY 101 COURSE

These gifted-specific professional training courses are offered by InterGifted's founding director Jennifer Harvey Sallin. They are specially designed for coaches, therapists, psychiatrists and other helping professionals who want to specialize in, or have better tools for, supporting gifted clients. They are combination courses which allow space for your own growth and reflection as a gifted person and gifted professional, while providing you with the theoretical knowledge, practical insight, case studies, and peer feedback to start your gifted-specific practice or bring your existing practice to a new level.

There are two versions of this course: a one year (12-session) version for coaches or to-be coaches who are not trained in psychology, and a 6 month (6-session) version for psychologists, psychiatrists and other professionals already trained in basic psychology. Jennifer also offers individualized training for professionals. For detailed course information, logistics and registration, visit our Gifted Psychology Training Page.

LEGITIMIZING YOUR GIFTED NEEDS WORKSHOP

This workshop with InterGifted coach and community leader Karin Eglinton is designed to help you take inventory of your gifted needs and to fully legitimize them and learn to meet them. You will explore how your gifted-specific needs have been minimized or unmet by others (and maybe sometimes yourself!); how you can get a better understanding of these uncommon needs; how you can get these uncommon needs met in a non-gifted dominant world; and how you can better communicate your gifted needs so that others can respond in positive ways. In addition to the material presented, these sessions hold rich, thoughtful and insightful group exercises, small group discussions with your gifted peers, Q+A, and resources and practices for you explore and to take into your daily life. The workshop is held on zoom.us for 3.5 hours. It is often followed up by an "Advanced Gifted Needs Workshop" for participants who want to take the concepts presented further in their personal integration process. Cost is 200 CHF.

Karin also offers gifted needs legitimization coaching & support for gifted people on an individual basis. If you're interested in exploring the possibilities with her, or getting on the wait list for our next offering of this workshop, email her.


GIFTED AUTISTIC WOMEN'S GROUP

This group, led by our InterGifted coach Silver Huang, is a self-development peer group for gifted and autistic women. Through six facilitated discussion sessions, you will explore together with your gifted autistic peers how have you integrated your knowledge of autism in your life; separating out what is autism, what is giftedness and what is trauma and how/where they overlap; what autistic trauma is and how to heal from it / how you have been healing from it; developing authentic and autistic-friendly self-care routines and schedules; how you can authentically connect with others, given your unique profile; and how you can cultivate generativity in your life, given your profile, values, relationships and resources. Sessions are once a month for six months, and last 2 hours.

GIFTED MEN'S GROUP

This group, led by our coach and InterGifted leader Merlin Györy, mixes the concept of a men's group and an incubator, aimed at covering fundamental self-development topics such as leadership, self-leadership, self-reflection and self-development. It's a space to learn to trust and support other gifted men on a peer level; to practice skills of relating and regulating; to cultivate safety and awareness for our own process. Sessions include prompts, discussion and resources on the following themes: moving things collectively that we can't move alone; creating a space to be heard in one's unique challenges and sense of meaning as a gifted man; transforming the restrictive "normative culture" mold of what it means to be a man; developing relational skills and finding a path to healthy self-empowerment.

Merlin is also available for self-leadership coaching for gifted men on an individual basis. If you're interested in exploring the possibilities with him, or getting on the wait list to join the group when it reopens to new members, email us.
