Volume Number



This is the third in a series of monographs funded by the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation through the Institute for the Development of Gifted Education at the University of Denver. The first monograph contained different perspectives on the growth and development of young gifted children. The second monograph addressed the characteristics and needs of the twice-exceptional: those who are gifted and have some type of disabling condition.

This monograph is focused on the personality, spiritual and character development of gifted children, including the process of instilling hope and resilience in this special population. The authors explore the development of personality, spirituality and character of gifted children that advances our current understanding of this population. Strategies are presented to support and nurture the needs of this unique group of children.
