Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You


Product Description

Published USA 1998
Do you have a keen imagination and vivid dreams?
Is time alone each day as essential to you as food and water?
Are you 'too shy' or 'too sensitive' according to others?
Do you feel overwhelmed by bright lights and noise?

One in every five people is born with a heightened sensitivity; they are often gifted with great intelligence, intuition and imagination, but there are also drawbacks. Frequently they come across as aloof, shy or moody and suffer from low self-esteem because they find it hard to express themselves in a society dominated by excess and stress. This book offers effective solutions to those feeling overwhelmed. With numerous case studies, exercises and advice, Elaine Aron focuses on the strengths of the trait, treating highly sensitive people that their sensitivity is not a flaw but an asset.

Elaine Aron trained at the Jung Institute in San Francisco, USA, and now has a psychotherapy practice in that city.
