Hochsensible im Beruf
Author: Brigitte Schorr
Publisher: SCM Hänssler
Menschen mit hochsensibler Begabung sehen, hören und spüren mehr als andere Menschen. Im Leben und im Beruf sind sie einem wahren Feuerwerk an Empfindungen ausgesetzt, die verarbeitet werden müssen: Bürogeräusche, grelles Licht, angespannte Situationen mit Kollegen oder Vorgesetzten, Stress und Hektik, Sinnfragen im Beruf – alles wird in besonders hohem Maße wahrgenommen. Brigitte Schorr, führende Expertin im deutschsprachigen Raum zum Thema, zeigt, was Hochsensibilität ist und wie Menschen mit dieser Begabung im Beruf leben und aufblühen können. Dabei betont sie: Hochsensibilität ist keine Krankheit, sondern eines der am meisten unterschätzten Potenziale!

The Highly Sensitive Person
Author: Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.
Publisher: Kensington Publishing Corp.
Are You A Highly Sensitive Person? 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 noise and confusion quickly overwhelm you? If your answers are yes, you may be a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP). Most of us feel overstimulated every once in a while, but for the HSP, it's a way of life. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Elaine Aron, a clinical psychologist, workshop leader, and an HSP herself, shows you how to identify this trait in yourself and make the most of it in everyday situations. Drawing on her many years of research and hundreds of interviews, she shows how you can better understand yourself and your trait to create a fuller, richer life. Updated with a new Author's Note, including the latest scientific research, and a fresh discussion of anti-depressants for HSPs, this edition of The Highly Sensitive Person also includes: Self-assessment tests to help you identify your particular sensitivities Ways to reframe your past experiences in a positive light and gain greater self-esteem in the process Insight into how high sensitivity affects both work and personal relationships Tips on how to deal with overarousal Information on medications and when to seek help Techniques to enrich the soul and spirit "Elaine Aron's perceptive analysis of this fundamental dimension of human nature is must reading. Her balanced presentation suggests new paths for making sensitivity a blessing, not a handicap." —Philip G. Zimbardo, author of Shyness "Enlightening and empowering, this book is a wonderful gift to us all." –Riane Ensler, author of The Chalice and the Blade
In this groundbreaking book, psychologist Zeff explores the unique challenges of sensitive boys, showing parents, educators, and mentors how to help them grow into strong, happy, and confident men.
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.
