Biweekly Monday Evenings
7:15-8:30pm at Dr. Laura's office group room
Dr. Elaine Aron's groundbreaking research on HSPs (Highly Sensitive Persons) helps us understand why this 15-20% of the population may feel like they are fundamentally different from most people they know.
As with any personality trait, sensory-processing sensitivity involves both light and shadow. HSPs often feel lonely and frustrated by having a keen level of awareness and empathy beyond what is culturally considered "normal." It can be helpful, encouraging, even inspiring to connect with other people who share this kind of highly-attuned temperament.
Therapy groups can give us a chance to observe our interactions with and reactions to others, experiment with different ways of relating in the moment, and increase our freedom and authenticity -- all in a safe space for the kind of real-time honest, respectful communication that rarely occurs in everyday life.
At present, the HSP Therapy Group is only open to Dr. Laura's clients. If you would like to participate in a short-term (4-week) HSP Group on Sunday afternoons, please contact her to let her know of your interest.
