This Monday, July 11, 2016, Dr. Glader will present at the Master Clinician Lecture Series on her work with what she calls Spunky Gifted Kids. A population that is often neglected in training programs for counselors, these kids require a different kind of engagement than other kids, even other smart kids.
Gretchen Witte Glader, PhD, LCSW was drawn to the area of the social emotional needs of gifted children through her work as a child psychotherapist. After encountering children who fit this profile but were not receiving the necessary help, she began to develop her philosophy and practice to serve this population in ways that aligned with her values as a social worker and Montessori teacher. Along with me, she opened Gifted Learning Center~North Shore in 2012. She is a certified Montessori Directress. She is a Senior School Social Worker, having served students with emotional disabilities in a school setting. She also is a child and adult psychotherapist in private practice.
The Master Clinician Lecture Series is intended for mental health professionals who want to continue to grow and learn, with the aim of becoming masters of our fields. This term’s theme is complexity, as we look at unpacking all the complexity that the human experience holds.
