Legitimizing Your Gifted Needs with Karin Eglinton



This workshop with InterGifted coach Karin Eglinton is all about taking inventory of and legitimizing your gifted needs. Since gifted people are often told that their standards are too high and unrealistic by others who don't understand that gifted people have uncommon needs, this may lead them to deny or judge their own needs and try to live without getting them met. In addition to the material presented, there's an emphasis on interaction and learning through each other's experiences. These sessions hold rich, thoughtful and insightful discussions with your gifted peers and have sparked major insights and life changes for many of our participants.


This workshop helps you look at:

  • how your gifted-specific needs have been minimized or unmet by others (and maybe sometimes yourself!)
  • how you can get a better understanding of these uncommon needs
  • how you can get these uncommon needs met in a non-gifted dominant world
  • how you can better communicate your gifted needs so that others can respond in positive ways.
