Talentissimo Webinar

Dr. Melanie Hayes speaks on Overcoming Gifted/2e Trauma

Event Info

Gifted/2e people are often highly sensitive to environmental stressors and may be traumatized by experiences that would not impact others. They are likely to be misunderstood, pressured to conform, bullied, overlooked, or exploited, which can lead to increased trauma throughout their lives. Too often their lived experiences are dismissed or misunderstood and they are expected to adapt to meet the needs of others, rather than being supported in building an environment that works for them. This presentation will explore the impact of trauma on G/2e people and offer validation for their experiences. Dr. Hayes will also provide suggestions and resources for working through trauma and reconnecting to your authentic self. In English. Cost: €25,00 including taxes.
