“You or Someone You Know has a Temperament of High Sensitivity”

Heather Smith

Despite a lifetime of hearing comments such as, “stop being so sensitive” or “why can’t you enjoy things like most people,” the individual with the high sensitivity temperament cannot change this aspect of themselves. The goal of this presentation is to inform LPCs about the trait, teach them how to use an instrument to assess for the trait, prepare them to provide psychoeducation, and assist them in discerning between DSM disorders and the trait.

Workshop Objectives

  1. Participants will be able to use the Highly Sensitive Person scale to assist in identifying individuals with the highly sensitive temperament trait (sensory processing sensitivity).
  2. Participants will be able to provide clients and students with psychoeducation about the highly sensitive temperament trait (sensory processing sensitivity).
  3. Participants will be able to sharpen clinical diagnostic skills differentiating between DSM disorders and a normal temperament trait that exists in a minority of the population and is largely misunderstood.
