Teo, C. T. (1999). Holistic counselling of gifted adolescents in Singapore. In M.

Intellectually gifted pupils in Singapore are blessed with supportive parents who are constantly
concerned with their development and attainment. In addition, the Gifted Education Branch of the
Ministry of Education has provided these pupils with an enriched and challenging curriculum.
Nevertheless, individual differences among the gifted are of such a wide range that individual
attention needs to be given to the pupils in the form of guidance and counselling in times of
stress. Counselling gifted adolescents in this study took the form of a holistic approach of first identifying a possible lack of development in the four areas of heart, body, mind and soul;
followed by individualised prescription for self-knowledge and volition for personal development.
Counselling vignettes of gifted pupils in the secondary schools are featured in this study.
