Listen in for a series of conversations on Gifted Trauma with InterGifted founder & director Jennifer Harvey Sallin and InterGifted coach Karin Eglinton. “Gifted trauma” is the trauma that gifted people can experience if they feel ridiculed, ignored, rejected, misunderstood, out-of-place, left out or left behind, pressured to conform, or excessively groomed or exploited as a result of their unusual minds. Gifted people’s experiences of other non-gifted specific traumas are also unique, as their extreme mental and often emotional intensity and complexity bring so many extra questions to the “unanswerable why” of trauma. We explore all this – and hope and healing – together from a personal development point of view.
