Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) are a highly misunderstood lot. And when it comes to seeking therapy services, this misunderstanding can often lead to more damage; because many HSPs tend to get a misdiagnosis.
In Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person: Improving Outcomes for That Minority of People Who Are the Majority of Clients, Elaine Aron provides information to help therapists differentiate the HSP trait from related (but different) temperaments such as introversion and inhibition.
She also teaches them how to:
- assess for the trait,
- distinguish the HSP trait from clinical diagnoses such as panic disorder or avoidant personality disorder,
- understand how sensitivity may change the presentation of a problem such as depression or shyness,
- generally inform, validate, and improve the quality of life for HSPs.
