SURVEY - Looking for Psychologists Who Work with Gifted Families

Looking for Psychologists Who Work with Gifted Families

The Gifted Children’s Association of BC (GCABC) is compiling a database of mental health professionals who have experience providing psychotherapy for and/or conducting psychoeducational assessments with gifted children and adults. As “gifted” is not a population that is listed on the BCPA psychologists’ list, it is difficult for these families to find professionals who have the specialized knowledge they are looking for.

Once we gather information from mental health professionals, we intend to provide this database as a publicly available resource on the Gifted Children’s Association of BC website.

If you feel that you might be a good fit, we strongly encourage you to fill out our short survey that should not take more than 15 minutes of your time.

If you have no experience working with gifted children but know someone who might, it would be very helpful if you would forward this invitation to them, or respond back to us with the name and email address of that/those individual(s).

Thank you for taking the time to consider our request. Please feel free to ask questions by emailing us at [email protected], or begin the survey at the link below:

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy Basic Training with Kelly Penner Hutton, Ph.D., C.Psych. - Winnipeg, MB - 3 parts: August 20-23, October 17-20, and January 18-19.
Transforming the Experience-Based Brain: A Somatic Touch Model of Resolving Developmental Trauma with Stephen Terrell, PsyD, SEP - March - August 2019

Transforming the Experience-Based Brain (TEB) is focused on the lasting imprints of experiencing non-verbal Developmental Trauma and how the neurological regulation system is compromised.  This compromised system develops defensive accommodations to over ride the missing pieces of development which affect the client’s ability to learn, socially engage, use imagination, gain a greater protective of the world, and attachment.  The students will understand and gain both knowledge and skills in how the neurological regulation system works and experience in applying tactile touch in building capacity in the system.  This awareness of how the system responds to early ruptures is also powerful in repairing shock trauma in the client through the awareness that a stronger initial developmental platform supports the systems automatic healing to trauma. Somatic Awareness brings forth the clinicians ability to recognize dysregulation in the client and touch brings forth a safe and effect way to work in the system without bringing forth more overwhelm.  Even for those who don’t use touch in their practice because of external restraints, this method of working with intention and attention can bring about a sense of healing and relief for your clients.  Through experiences and process, the student will move through the healing process from understanding the basic physiology of trauma to more advanced skills of working within specific systems affected by early ruptures. TEB is a learning process for anyone who works directly with trauma including but not limited to Psychiatrist, Psychologist, Psychotherapist, Social Workers, Somatic Experiencing Practitioners, Massage Therapist, Body Workers, Acupuncturist, Counselors, Hakomi Practitioners, Sensory Motor Practitioners, Play Therapist, Physical Therapist, and Occupational Therapist. TEB is presented through a combination of lectures, videos, and actual experience of using somatic touch as clinician, client, and observer.  By adding skills each module, the student will develop a greater awareness of working directly with neurobiological ruptures in the system and the ways that these early ruptures have affected the clients. We will also bring into focus Maslow’s work on developmental platforms and integrate it with Porges work on Polyvagal System along with the impact regulation on the client’s ability to self regulate.
