Dr. Elaine Aron s newest book, 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. Readers 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. Three appendices provide the HSP
Scale, a summary of the extensive research on this innate trait,
and its relation to DSM diagnoses. Through this helpful guide,
therapists will see a marked improvement in their ability to assist
highly sensitive clients.
