Over 90 studies report data on the twenty percent who are highly sensitive, possessing what C. G. Jung first described in the CW, v.4 as “sensitiveness.” There is a pressing need to discuss its clinical implications.
Mistaken for a century as shyness, inhibitedness, or introversion, sensitiveness is best described as sensitivity, following growing
genetic and brain research since 1996. Yet its clinical implications are rarely discussed. This gap is bridged by the presenter, Elaine Aron, a clinical psychologist and researcher who renamed the trait and published the first studies, as well as writing six books on it, the latest being The Highly Sensitive Parent.

Aron will first discuss Jung’s revolutionary counter to Freud’s argument that neurotics display innate sexual perversion. Then she will summarize the most important research and the implications of the trait’s probable evolutionary origins, how it differs from various disorders for which it can be mistaken, how to assess for it clinically, the ways highly sensitive clients might differ from others, and their typical relationship and career issues. Highly sensitive children and adolescents will also be touched on. Experientially, participants will explore their own relationship to the trait, in themselves, their clients, or their family.
 
 
ELAINE N. ARON, PhD, has been studying high sensitivity since 1990. Besides her research, published in well-respected journals, she has written five books, including The Highly Sensitive Person (in 31 languages), The Highly Sensitive Child, and Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person. She and her husband Arthur Aron are also well known for their study of love and close relationships.
