Description

As a grown up gifted kid herself, Dr. Aimee Yermish definitely “gets it.” She coupled her lifetime of personal experience with a doctorate in psychology to build a highly successful practice working primarily with gifted and twice exceptional individuals. Topics covered in this interview include:

  • Giftedness can be viewed as a cultural experience, and it is important for practitioners to be culturally competent with this population
  • Gifted kids often have gifted parents who really appreciate longer feedback sessions and detailed reports so that they can understand your thinking
  • Smart psychologists have to do their own work around being smart, or it may manifest as counter-transference

Target audience:  Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses.

This CE program is designated as intermediate.
