Superhero or Super Difficult? Changing Narratives With Highly Sensitive People

Mar 30, 2019 10:30am ‐ Mar 30, 2019 12:00pm


Description

Approximately 20% of the population is born with a temperamental characteristic: heightened sensory processing sensitivity (i.e., highly sensitive people). Children develop a narrative regarding their sensitivity; it is seen either as a gift or as a problem. This narrative later influences their self-esteem, anxiety, and depression symptoms. This workshop will provide an exploration of childhood influences, assessment strategies, and changing their narrative through strength-based intervention approaches.
