You Are A Super Hero: Counseling Highly Sensitive People

Title:
You Are A Super Hero: Counseling Highly Sensitive People from A Resiliency Approach
Description:
When a client presents with anxiety, sensitivity and interpersonal problems, it is standard to look for pathology. However, for approximately 20 percent of the population, these symptoms may be indicative of a genetic temperamental characteristic, heightened sensory processing sensitivity. These individuals, also referred to as highly sensitive people, commonly seek counseling. This session will provide case studies, assessment strategies and differential diagnoses, as well as strength-based and resiliency intervention approaches.
Learning Objectives:
1.Participants will be able to define the characteristic of sensitivity, as well as to identify signs in a client that they may be a Highly Sensitive Person.
2.Participants will be able to describe how these characteristics can be misdiagnosed as other disorders, and why certain effective counseling treatment strategies will be entirely unsuccessful for this population.
3.Participants will be able to outline developmentally-appropriate, strength-based counseling techniques for working with clients who are HSPs.
