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:
