Publisher's Summary

Dr. Elaine Aron's audiobook Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person redefines the term highly sensitive for the professional researcher and practitioner. She dispels common misconceptions about the relationship between sensitivity and other personality traits, such as introversion and shyness, and further defines the trait for the benefit of both the clinician and patient. 

Listeners will learn to assess for the trait, distinguish it 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, and generally inform, validate, and improve the quality of life for these clients. She pays particular attention to self-esteem issues and helping patients separate effects of their innate temperament from problems due to their personal learning histories. 

Dr. Aron keeps both patient and practitioner in mind as she suggests ways to adapt treatment for highly sensitive persons and how to deal with the typical issues that arise. Through this helpful guide, therapists will see a marked improvement in their ability to assist highly sensitive clients.

Must have for any professional

One book that Brene Brown-ites and professionals should read.

Wish I had this book when it was written.

Too long that I have gone through life being a sensitive and not being understood nor more patient with myself.

My children's social worker and teachers felt that I was a 'weakling' due to demonstrating emotion and my creative nature.

The author was spot on regarding many aspects of my self to which I did compared the pro's and cons. Only two cons which I worked out these aspects.

Not a journalist but love being an editorial artist or technical illustrator which meant research and understanding.

Too bad that a lot of people thing artist are fluffy-headed non-practical people.

I think the book was being polite by not calling non-sensitives to in-sensitives. Too many times that I was told to "walk it off" or "get over it" and even "your're imagining it".

The Cassandra Effect was dead on. I've even used that term and for years did not follow my intuition which has gotten me into trouble.

All I can say is that this is a fantastic resource for any one in the mental health field or a person like myself for greater insight (you better have an open mind for the truth).

I also wanted to say that the narrator did a great job, sounding compassionate yet professional.

Thank you all.

Why can't they work out the chapters correctly?

Chapter nunbers don't match up. Choose chapter four and audio says it's chapter one.
Also... Can't they type in the title for each chapter??

Books good
Narrations good.
Chapter thing is super annoying.
