Workshop for Creativity and Growth for Parents of Gifted/2e Kids.  May, 2019. Berkeley, CA.

Workshop for parents of 2e kids in May of 2019 about personal growth, connection, and having fun! I’m doing this one with a colleague who is a genius at teaching improv in a supportive, heart-centered way.  I will lead some tapping (EFT) exercises to help us reach the goals we want for ourselves.

Improv helps us access the part of our brain that can creatively problem-solve. Tapping helps us get past any blocks that are keeping us from what we want. Saturdays in May: 4-week workshop to bring in fun and more creativity. We will use journaling, tapping (EFT), and improv to bring forth more creativity and growth in a fun, nurturing environment. Join us!

Monday, March 4
10:30 to 11:30 am
Lafayette, CA 

Come hear Teresa Currivan, LMFT and Parent Coach (that’s me), talk about Twice Exceptionality. Most of us have heard the term, but what is it, really?

2e (twice exceptionality) refers to gifted individuals who also have challenges. But there’s so much more to understand. These kids are often the ones struggling emotionally or academically (ironic, I know) in school and have been given labels by professionals that may not be as helpful as understanding the bigger picture of how they are wired. They often don’t seem “gifted” in the traditional sense.

There will be plenty of time for Q&A.

When: Monday, March 4
10:30 to 11:30 am
Where: Lafayette, CA (Address given upon RSVP)

This is a free event with limited space. Please RSVP to

High School Options for 2e Learners: An Informal Parent Discussion Group

Are you ready to begin considering high school options for your 2e child? Do you know of some high schools that might work, or do you want to come and learn from other parents to increase your knowledge about East Bay and SF options? Information about high schools in other areas also welcome. This is a great opportunity to meet other 2e parents! (PS: I’m looking for someone to briefly share their experience homeschooling a gifted and/or 2e teen.)
