GIFTED PSYCHOLGY 101 FOR COACHES
We're currently taking registrations for our next iteration of Gifted Psychology 101 for Coaches, scheduled to start in June 2021. This is an online training course for coaches who want to specialize in, or have better tools for, supporting gifted clients. Created & led by InterGifted's founding director Jennifer Harvey Sallin, it is a combination course which allows space for your own growth and reflection as a gifted person and gifted professional, while providing you with the theoretical knowledge, practical insight, case studies, and peer feedback to start your gifted-specific coaching practice or bring your existing coaching practice to a new level. See what past participants have said about the course here.
We are aiming to start in June 2021, and will schedule our sessions according to participant availability. Send Jen an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your professional background to express interest in joining.
