Balanced research and practice
The aim of my research and work is to discover what challenges connected to giftedness university students encounter when starting and continuing their studies. Challenges in academic and other skills, in their needs and in social interaction.Based on my research and on conversations with many gifted students I developed group sessions and individual counselling. The purpose of the counselling is that gifted students can develop skills and methods to deal with these (and other) challenges. I also create opportunities for them to meet each other.
