Reviews

"Dabrowski's concepts of overexcitabilities and positive disintegration are helpful in understanding what might otherwise seem like inexplicable behaviors among some gifted children and adults." - Steven I. Pfeiffer, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director of Clinical Training, The Florida State University "A detailed and insightful perspective on intensity throughout the lifespan. The section on adolescence should be compulsory reading for parents, teachers and counselors." - Professor Miraca U.M. Gross, Director: Gifted Education Research, Resource and Information Centre (GERRIC), The University of New South Wales "... a wonderful exploration of the multi-faceted sensitivities/intensities of gifted children and adults.... It will assist parents, teachers, and clinicians to understand and nurture the complex combination of intellectual advancement and overexcitabilities ... and avoid tragic misperceptions and misdiagnoses." - Barbara Jackson Gilman, M.S., Associate Director of Gifted Development Center, Author of Academic Advocacy for Gifted Children "This book is an ideal companion to Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration (2008). ... some nice examples of working with (not against, or trying to fix) intensity." - Leslie Forstadt, Ph.D., in Roeper Review "[A] great addition to a "gifted" library." - Christine Fonseca, author of Emotional Intensity in Gifted Students and 101 Success Secrets for Gifted Kids "On the topic of emotional intensity and sensitivity... Living with Intensity [will] be helpful to you in terms of offering concrete strategies to use." - Center for Talent Development Director, Paula Olszewski-Kubilius "Living With Intensity has served as the guiding tome for our work with gifted children at our K-8 school. It has framed for our faculty the central paradigm of our work- beginning with the rich inner life of the gifted child and building powerful learning opportunities and programming that engages their deep, natural interest in the world from there. For educators and parents working with our complex and brilliant children, there may not be a single work as important as Living With Intensity." - Eric Robertson, Ed.S, Head of School, Mackintosh Academy, Pamela Andreas Campus
