The University of Iowa College of Education Dean Nick Colangelo and assistant professor Susannah Wood are the guest co-editors for a special Gifted Education section in the April edition of the Journal of Counseling & Development.

The Journal of Counseling & Development is a peer-reviewed academic journal published on behalf of the American Counseling Association. This is the first time in the last 25 years the topic of gifted education is featured in a major counseling journal.

Colangelo and Wood wrote the introduction to the special section: “Counseling the Gifted Individual” and also collaborated to write “Counseling the Gifted: Past, Present and Future Directions.”

The special section also featured work by UI faculty and alumni:

Susan Assouline, director of the UI Belin-Blank Center and professor of School Psychology, and Megan Foley Nicpon, associate director for research and clinic at the UI Belin-Blank Center and associate professor in Counseling Psychology, wrote “Counseling Considerations for the Twice-Exceptional Client.”

Purdue University professor emeritus Jean Peterson, who received her Master of Arts and Ph.D. from UI’s College of Education, wrote “Counselors and Gifted Kids: Respecting both Cognitive and Affective.”

Carol Klose Smith, a clinical associate professor in Rehabilitation and Counselor Education at UI, and Michelle Muratori, a research psychologist/counselor at Johns Hopkins University and a UI Ph.D. graduate, wrote “Guiding the Talent and Career Development of the Gifted Individual.”

Barbara Kerr, a faculty member at the University of Kansas and a former UI faculty member, and Karen Multon, a faculty member at the University of Kansas, wrote “The Development of Gender Identity, Gender Role, and Gender Relations in Gifted Students.”
