The theory of relinquishing dreams was generated in the substantive area of gifted adults, and examines the ways in which individuals consciously and unconsciously forgo their personal and professional objectives. For her doctoral dissertation, Dr. Dietrich interviewed gifted adults and asked them to “Tell me about your dreams”. She was fascinated and surprised when what emerged were NOT revelations about all of the dreams that they had achieved. Rather, without exception, every single participant in the study chose to focus on stories of all of the many dreams that they had relinquished, and the subsequent regret that had resulted!
This webinar may be beneficial for gifted adults in examining how their own complex behaviors and emotions have impacted their past, current, and potential future decision-making. It may also be useful for those who work with or live with gifted individuals. This webinar will help parents and educators to recognize and better navigate some of these barriers. It will equip them with strategies, resources, and ideas on how to implement positive behavior supports for dealing with conflict and change that may promote the resiliency that is necessary for optimal dream realization for gifted children and adults.
