Collaboration

I have been blessed to work with many amazing people in the gifted community over the past several years. Here are some of the places where you can find my work with others.

 

Positive Disintegration Study Group

It's important to me that we have a strong online community for individuals who resonate with Dabrowski’s theory. During quarantine in spring 2020, I started a Positive Disintegration Study Group with my friend and colleague, Kate Arms. We meet via Zoom on the fourth Saturday of every month for 90 minutes. There’s also a Facebook group for members so that we can keep in touch and share thoughts and questions in between meetings. If you’re interested in joining, please contact Chris for more information.

Institute for the Study of Advanced Development

In my role as the director of qualitative research at ISAD, I consult with academics and graduate students from around the world who study giftedness and Dabrowski’s theory. See the Research page for more.
