Preparing for Rigor: Cultivating Psychosocial Skills and Habits of Achievement in Talent Development

How can we prepare students with the mental skills to handle setbacks, challenges, and competition in rigorous learning environments? How can we help students manage stress, learn balance, and channel enthusiasm into endurance? The role of emotions, self-beliefs, and metacognition are critical in talent development. When students are aware of what they think and do, they can manage what they think and do. In this session, you will learn practical strategies for cultivating psychosocial skills and metacognition to foster self-awareness, self-management, and agency so that students are prepared to tackle obstacles and challenges related to high performance. These skills set a foundation for the flourishing development of talent so that students can know, show, and grow their budding potential and strengths.

Emily Mofield, Ed.D., is an Assistant Professor at Lipscomb University, teaching courses in the Gifted Education and Advanced Academics Program and the Ed.D. Program for Leadership and Strategic Change. With over 20 years of experience in gifted education as a teacher, district leader, and now assistant professor, Emily is passionate about developing high-quality resources to equip teachers to identify, serve, and support gifted and high-potential students.
