Event description
While giftedness spans all socioeconomic and cultural groups, many students remain unidentified and underserved in gifted programs.

About this Event

Who should attend: testing psychologists, pediatricians, school counselors, and educators.

Join Frank C. Worrell, Ph.D. to learn the factors that lead to many high potential students of color and other underserved populations to be missing in gifted programs: the achievement gap, opportunity gap, and excellence gap. His insight and research on cultural identities offers awareness and action for psychologists, pediatricians, school counselors, educators and school administrators to increase equity and provide the rigorous and challenging coursework all students deserve.

A Q&A will follow Dr. Worrell's remarks, and you are encouraged to provide questions in advance during the registration process.

Frank C. Worrell received a BA and a Masters in Psychology at the University of Western Ontario and a Ph.D. in School and Educational Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. Currently, he is a Professor in the Graduate School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, where he serves as Director of the School Psychology program, Faculty Director of the Academic Talent Development Program, and Faculty Director of the California College Preparatory Academy. He also holds an affiliate appointment in the Social and Personality Area in the Department of Psychology. His areas of expertise include academic talent development/gifted education, at-risk youth, cultural identities, scale development and validation, teacher effectiveness, time perspective, and the translation of psychological research findings into school-based practice. Dr. Worrell is a member of The Grayson School Research Advisory Board.
