Anxiety and Adolescents – The Davidson Institute

This month the GCABC recommends articles on anxiety and adolescents from the Davidson Institute . 

by Debbie Clelland

The Davidson Institute is an organization that supports the education and sharing of information for gifted and profoundly gifted students and their families.  This organization has resources that I have found to be reliable, well-researched and wide-ranging. They include resources that teachers and parents often find very practical and helpful.

They have many programs for young scholars (online and summer events), and a high school program at the University of Nevada, Reno. They also offer resources for parents, such as an online community, webinars, books and articles on many valuable topics.

The Davidson Institute also has an e-newsletter that includes recent resources or articles of interest to educators and parents.  This month we recommend their articles on anxiety and adolescents.  The links provided in the Davidson Institute newsletter are below.
