Volume 15: Giftedness and Mental Health
Highlights include keynote addresses by Lawrence Nixon and Linda Silverman from the Dabrowski Congress in 2014. They address creativity and empathy, respectively, as major themes in the theory of positive disintegration. Researchers Eve Her and Fatimah Haron used the Adult Giftedness Scale, available in the appendix, in their study of giftedness, creativity, and postformal thinking in Malaysian adults. Three amazing articles in this issue focus on giftedness and mental health. They include a personal account of twice exceptionality, client and therapists’ perspectives on an eating disorder, and a therapist’s experience of dealing with her own intense empathy with clients. Of special interest are the charcoal drawing by sculptor and artist, Rita Kepner, depicting the concept of intuition. Allegory, poetry, and book reviews add to this exceptional issue of the journal.
