The author, a nationally recognized leader in gifted education, discusses theories that guide our examination of the lived experiences of gifted students; social and emotional characteristics and behaviors evidenced in gifted learners; friendships and family relationships that support them; contextual influences that shape their social and emotional lives; and identity development.
