Underachievement served with pot or antidepressants? I think addiction on many planes ... with one simple solution!

Gifted person may have the outer trappings of success such as family, friends, job, home, etc. and yet for a Gifted person they are actually under-performing and at some level they realize it. Then they start smoking pot or taking antidepressants ... read more here: http://www.alifeofthemind.com/2011/06/17/gifted-adults-feeling-something-isnt-quite-right I suggest you do get on with reading the above article read before studying this picture, see this is where I become the flamethrower.



BUT, see  I think of more excessive behaviours, and DARE the word ADDICTIONS! This above chart names most of it. And the site I found it on is easy to understand and quite to the point, if you have time to read another half page. http://relaxedfocus.blogspot.com/2011/09/addiction-is-not-disease-of-brain-npr.html

 So people keep doing it, well some do. I have a suggestion about why.



See you probably think it's all about another way of spending multimillions of dollars trying to figure how to break the cycle. The ideas are well explained here, where the site gives some explanations again simply put.  http://www.auroh.com/addiction/homeopathic-treatment-for-addiction.php

I however BELIEVE we create addictive behaviours by unnoticed underachievement. Idle hands and all that ... and the pain from not feeling the flow of creation. See if I was in charge there would be no time to execute addictive behaviourisms to fill out time. Believe me when I tell you that my definition includes overhelpfullness, bitchyness, bully behaviour and greed as well. Those are just learned behaviours to cope with: Addictions to fill the gaps of BOREDOM!





So please go for anger management before shooting the messenger. I think these guys might have a point or three. Earning loads on mismanagement of UNDERACHIEVEMT! Yet they are spot on, cos once there anger management is one key, and for it to turn to open the door to where the flow of creation can begin, takes some large dose of ANGER Management.  http://www.angermanagementresource.com/dealing-with-anger.html


Definition: Underachievement occurs when a child's performance is below what is expected based on the child's ability. Just google and you will figure it out.


As I would like to point out so well put by a Facebook buddie "One point from my side is still that you can always push for more. Go above. And that part is individual and could break the boredom that leads to addiction of anything ...."

Twice Exceptional Denmark

Twice Exceptional Denmark er lavet for dobbelt exceptionelle børn dvs. børn med særlige forudsætninger som samtidig har indlæringsvanskeligheder. Disse børn kan have opmærksomheds-, koncentrations- og kontakt- vanskeligheder som oftest er pga. Ordblindhed/ Dyslexi, ADHD, AS, PDD NOS, OCD, Tourette osv.

Det ofte set at Børn med særlige forudsætninger er af natur Asynkron Udviklet dvs. det halter med at deres emotionelle og sociale udvikling følger med det som ses ved jævnaldrende, samtidig med at de lærer lynhurtigt det emner de er motiveret for og ender således ofte foran jævnaldrende i disse oråder, uden sparringspartner. Børnene ender ofte meget ”misforstået” og en tværfagligindsats er nødvendig hvis sådan en situation skal kunne vendes.

Tværfaglighed bør bestå af en BMSF konsulent/psykolog og derudover specialister jvf. barnets specifikke diagnoser og andre problemer hver gang handleplaner udarbejdes, barnets evalueres osv. Men der er langt vej endnu, da BMSF ikke anerkendes i Kommunerne, og dermed overses det at barnet har behov for en ”særlig” forståelse og indsigt for at børnene kan få den rette hjælp jvf. Socialloven og Inklusion.

Men desværre ses disse børn i AKT forløb, heldagsskoler og kan ende i Udsatte grupper:

De unge, som kommer til opholdsstederne, har været vanskelige at placere i de kommunale tilbud, hvor hverken de unge, som kommer til opholdstederne eller de elever, der går i de kommunale tilbud, vil profitere af at være sammen.
