SENGinar: Transformational Well-Being: Improving the Social and Emotional Wellness of Gifted Adults
Time & Location
Dec 08, 2020, 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM
About The Event
Everyone deserves to feel happy, healthy, and successful, and to find meaning and purpose in life. Common stumbling blocks to this actually occurring, especially in gifted adults, are low levels of social and emotional wellness. Social and emotional wellness includes the skills of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship building and maintenance, responsible decision-making, and more. For gifted adults to achieve fulfillment, and to live a life of meaning and purpose, these skills need to be learned, practiced, and strengthened. This session will help individuals engage in this process of self-discovery and improvement using evidence-based practices from social and emotional learning and positive psychology.
