Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

Do you long to drive a Ferrari at top speed on the open road, but find yourself always stuck on the freeway during rush hour? Do you wonder how you can feel like "not enough" and "too much" at the same time? Like the rain forest, are you sometimes intense, multilayered, colorful, creative, overwhelming, highly sensitive, complex, and/or idealistic? And, like the rain forest, have you met too many chainsaws? Enter Paula Prober, M.S., M.Ed., who understands the diversity and complexity of minds like yours. In "Your Rainforest Mind: A Guide to the Well-Being of Gifted Youths and Adults," Paula explores the challenges faced by gifted adults of all ages. Through case studies and extensive research, Paula will help you tap into your inner creativity, find peace, and discover the limitless potential that comes with your Rainforest Mind.

This book beautifully articulates a radical new way of viewing sensitivity as an aspect of gifted intelligence. Paula's history as a former TAG teacher, and current specialist in gifted development, allow her to speak with authority, humor and depth on the complexities of the gifted experience. She includes both the unexpected advantages and the unique disadvantages of those whose functioning far exceeds the average.

Anyone with a gifted child or a history of unusual or advanced intellect should read this book right away. You will find your previous assumptions challenged and identity redefined. You will experience relief and expansion as you integrate this rich view point. Reading the in-depth case histories will give you an experience of membership in the Rainforest Tribe.

Your Rainforest Mind is THE book for those people beginning their exploration of gifted issues as well as those (like me) who have been in gifted education for decades. I own dozens of book on giftedness (and I have read many more), and this book rises to the top for its holistic approach to understanding gifted people.

As a professor of gifted education, I was always looking for the best resources to expand my students’ hearts and minds about gifted people. I certainly would have required this book for my courses on "Introduction to Gifted Education" and "Social and Psychological Foundations of Gifted Children."

What makes Prober's work seminal is that it includes the stories and voices of her clients, it provides a wealth of valuable resources, and it has the potential of having a significant impact on gifted adults, and on the parents of gifted children.

The stories of Prober's clients are so compelling, I am grateful to be able to learn from them, and I know many readers will now hope to find a therapist who connects so deeply with their rainforest minds.

This is SUCH a fantastic new book! It's written by Paula Prober, a licensed counselor for gifted adults. I was really touched by her website and blog and ordered this book as soon as it was available. Each chapter includes typical gifted challenges illustrated through clients she has seen over the years (names changed for anonymity) along with strategies for EACH chapter. I loved this because it's easy to read and relate to and rather than just say "what and why" it shares"how can I get through this, what can I try" with realistic ideas. As opposed to some more typical academic books discussing gifted topics in a formally instructive way, this book infuses many of the same gifted topics through examples gifted adults will readily recognize -from perfectionism, idealism, sensitivity, childhood trauma, asynchronous development, anxiety, existential depression, etc. It's a relief not only to read about so many others we can relate to, but also to learn new ideas- what do we DO about it? So many books leave out the REAL strategies leaving me to wonder "Should I seek counseling?" and then the circular reasoning of "Well, but where can I find a gifted counselor?" And then we are back to square one. :) This book has the major advantage of all the strategies at the end of each chapter. So if you're a reader who loves to digest on your own time and have thought that "if only I could find a person who COULD help" then it's a great book! Gifted adults will walk away feeling understood, relieved, and with ideas we can try to invest in ourselves just the way we are. It's really realistic and helps us accept how normal we are. So empowering ! A really great read for gifted adults and young adults. This is a book I will read over and over again as I continue to grow and change in my life. I'm very thankful for the ongoing research on gifted adults (we are simply grown-up gifted kids afterall). :) Get this book for yourself or someone who is dear to you. You'll love it.

A creative, insightful read. Paula Prober is well-named, as she walks with you through this comprehensive mental probing of what she calls "Your Rainforest Mind." Spoiler: She gives her own verbal illustrations on the different types of minds she's encountered throughout her long career as a therapist and teacher. Some minds she describes as deserts, some as plains, but the "gifted mind" she refers to as a rainforest...because rainforests are infinitely complex and ever-changing places.
I related to this book on a personal level, and it helped me greatly in discovering the facets and abilities within myself. It's a wonderful guidebook for those who can't figure out what they want to do in life (because they want to--and CAN do literally EVERYTHING) and are hungry for uniquely personalized advice.

Not many help books for the gifted, so I consider this an extremely valuable and necessary read for the Rainforest Mind.

Paula's book has helped me in the journey of my self-discovery of giftedness by illustrating all of the challenges I've had my entire life. Reading her book showed me that my challenges were not the sign of a broken person, but a person that has different needs and that it's okay to be like that. I've found acceptance in the gifted community and this book was (figuratively) stuck in my back pocket as a guide. I finally can feel okay about being intense, realize my quirks for what they are, and make the moves I need to, to counteract so that they don't take over my life. Paula has made it really easy for even those unaware of giftedness to understand the struggles we face every day. Paula writes in such an approachable and compassionate way that you can't help but love her.

If you're wondering if you're gifted, buy this book. You'll know for sure by the end. If you're wondering how to deal with being gifted, buy this book. If you want to know how to help and support a loved one in your life that struggles with these issues, buy this book. You won't be disappointed.
