Topic: The Little Engine that Wouldn't: Underachievement and Risk Avoidance in Gifted Youth.

Description: They've got the smarts, and sometimes even the desire and drive, yet somehow they never get the train up the mountain. They've got the ability, yet if they can't do it right the very first time, they don't even want to try. What's going on? Join us as Lisa Van Gemert, the Gifted Guru and author of Perfectionism: A Practical Guide to Managing Never Good Enough, explores exactly why our gifted youth struggle with risk avoidance and underachievement. Take away practical ideas, and maybe even a little paradigm shift.

Speaker: Lisa Van Gemert, M.Ed.T.
Lisa Van Gemert, M.Ed.T., is the Gifted Youth Specialist for Mensa, as well as a popular conference speaker and professional development facilitator. A teacher and school administrator prior to joining Mensa, Lisa focuses on serving those who serve the gifted. Being a product of gifted education and the parent of gifted children herself allows Lisa to bring practical (and often humorous) insight into the needs of gifted youth. Lisa lives in Arlington, Texas with her husband.
