People Who Get Me
A Group to Support Gifted Adults
- Eight successive Monday nights
- January 7 through February 25
- 6:15pm – 7:45pm
- Limit of 8 members
When you’ve had a lifetime of feeling like the odd one out, the experience of being together with people who understand your intensities and your anxieties, your perfectionism and your idealism, is powerful. Being gifted comes with social confusion and isolation, and group counseling is a proven way to overcome the insecurities trained into gifted people by a society that prefers you to keep yourself in check.
The lives of the differently wired are qualitatively different from the majority’s. I invite you to come together with people who get you.
Meeting weekly on Monday nights from 6:15 – 7:45pm, the group will draw from various resources (books, articles, movies, etc.) to focus on your shared experiences. The group will have some thematic structure and will also allow for exploration of your personal gifted experiences. Some of the themes you can expect to address are anxiety, perfectionism, multipotentiality, existential issues, social situations, asynchrony, frustration, and more.
You’ll meet people who are at various stages of their gifted identity development journey. You’ll feel like an equal in a community of equals. You’ll give and receive. You’ll help others and be helped by them. You’ll have a safe, supportive place to practice becoming more fully yourself. You’ll learn things you didn’t know. You’ll grow. You’ll laugh. You’ll feel like you belong.
