Beyond IQ: Greater Boston

"Images of Self"

2013 Program

Registration and the Friday program will be held in rooms...


Friday, April 5, at BIQ

Workshops for Professionals


Check-in for Friday will be between 8 and 9am, with a continental breakfast. Lunch on Friday will also be with the Conference. We usually finish up around 4pm, but sometimes discussions go on into dinner!

In keeping with the theme of the weekend, a major focus of our discussions will deal with self-image of the gifted and how they affect professionals. We’ll explore those ideas – and what is/is not within our domain to address.

Rather than setting up a fixed structure for our day, we will engage in discussions, varying large and small group interaction based on the needs and interests of our attendees. This permits us to address individual questions more effectively than the standard presentation model seems to.

Let us know your interests!
