Abstract

The study aims to examine: (a) psychological issues, (b) coping mechanism, (c) types of counseling services, and (d) the need to seek counseling services among Malaysian gifted students. Data was collected using a set of questionnaires, informal interviews and CIMR form. One hundred and eighty-students were involved in the study. Data from the study suggested that the students faced psychological issues that need attention and attributed their most effective coping mechanism as getting absorbed in academic work. More than 50% prefer to deal with their issues themselves and to seek help in mainly career and academic work. There is a significant difference in terms of the need to seek counseling services among gifted students with different gender and age group.
