VOL! Webinar: impostor syndrome: straks vinden ze uit dat ik eigenlijk toch niet zo slim ben!

Over deze avond

Ondanks hun hoge IQ voelen veel hoogbegaafden zich alsof ze ‘door de mand’ kunnen vallen. Ze zijn bang dat iemand uitvindt dat ze toch niet zo goed of slim zijn zijn als anderen denken, dat de ander ze erg overschat. Vooral hoogbegaafde meisjes en vrouwen hebben hier last van, al zijn er natuurlijk ook mannen die dit ervaren. In dit webinar zal dr. Matt Zakreski, Amerikaans psycholoog met specialisme hoogbegaafdheid, zijn inzichten hierover delen. Iedereen die het interessant vindt is welkom bij dit webinar, of je er nu zit als hoogbegaafde volwassene, begeleider of ouder.

Deze avond is in het Engels, daarom ook een Engelse beschrijving:

“They’re All Going to Find Out I’m a Fraud!”  Combatting Impostor Syndrome in the Gifted Brain

Impostor Syndrome is a psychological phenomenon that causes people to doubt their accomplishments and fear being “discovered” as a fraud.  It is very common within the gifted population and has seriously negative impacts. This session will explore the maintaining factors of this Syndrome and outline strategies to undo it.

Imposter Syndrome is a psychological pattern where a person doubts their fitness, devalues their accomplishments, and fears being “discovered to be fraud.”  It is a common pattern in individuals with a gifted brain and can be intensely dysregulating and unpleasant.  Imposter Syndrome is created by a maladaptive pattern of cognition and social comparison that can have negative impacts on academic performance, social skills, activity engagement, and self-esteem.  This session will define Imposter Syndrome, explore some symptoms of it both internally and externally, and give techniques on how to blunt its impact.  Participants will be encouraged to learn how to check their thinking, practice self-compassion, and give themselves credit for the work that they have already done while appreciating the work that is left to do.
