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 current and past 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.
