Social and Emotional Considerations to Support Gifted Students of Color

Nancy Chae, Citlali E. Molina

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Although researchers have identified social and emotional needs of gifted students, there is a call for special attention to social and emotional considerations when counseling gifted students of color, who encounter experiences related to intersections of their racial, ethnic, cultural, and academic identities. Moreover, counselors must address several considerations that contribute to and perpetuate issues connected to social and emotional wellness, including systemic barriers, racial identity development, social connectedness, coping skills, and connections with parents, guardians, and families of gifted students of color. Gifted students of color may come from various racial and ethnic groups, such as Asian American and Pacific Islander, African American, Hispanic and Latino, and Native American. Gifted students of color have unique experiences related to systemic barriers, discrimination and prejudice, racial identity development, and social connectedness.
