Conversations on Gifted Trauma Podcast

“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. Also, their mental complexity and often emotional intensity bring so many extra questions to the “unanswerable why” of trauma.
