The purpose of this research is investigating effects of the SENG (Social Emotional Needs of Gifted Children) Parent Education Model on gifted children and their parents. The participants of this study were parents of 3rd, 4th and 5th grade gifted children attending Yasemin Karakaya Science and Art Center in Ankara, Turkey and the children themselves. The research design was pre-post test, experimental and control group design. There were 20 parents in each of the experimental and control groups and the training lasted 10 weeks. The results of the program were assesed by Hacettepe Emotional Adjustment Scale, and the Social Support Appraisal Scale. Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test and Mann Whitney U Test were used to analyze the data. The results showed that the effects of the SENG Model on the emotional adjustment levels of gifted children, evaluated from their parents' perspective, are positive and statistically significant. However, no significant effects from the support program were identified in gifted children's perception of social support from their parents.
