Current Problems of Work with Gifted Children 4001

Yurkiewich V.S.
PhD in Psychology, Professor, Head of the Laboratory “Educational Strategies for Giftedness Development”, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education, Moscow, Russia

The article presents well-known and new approaches to work with gifted children. The basis of the analysis is the idea that the development dependents primarily on the dominant system of needs that from these positions are the driving force of child development. Regarding different types of giftedness, the author pays particular attention to intellectual giftedness. Considering the different types of giftedness, the author still focuses on intellectual giftedness, since this type is in some sense the starting point for the development of all other types, accounting for a base of general giftedness (the so-called "factor G»). Particular attention is paid to the so-called "dominant life project" which provides future opportunity to the successful implementation of high capacity gifted man.

Keywords: gifted children, the intellectual potential of society, types of giftedness, the dominant life project, the problems of self-regulation, communication problems.

Column: Developmental Psychology
