Editorial Reviews


'Highly sensitive people disproportionately benefit from supporting experiences, like therapy, yet prove especially vulnerable to adverse ones, including troubled childhoods. This insightful volume, which explains why that is the case and provides guidance for maximizing treatment efficacy, should be on every therapist’s bookshelf.' - Jay Belsky, Director, Institute for the Study of Children, Families and Social Issues, University of London

'Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person is a must-read for every therapist since up to fifty percent of therapy clients may have the trait of high sensitivity. The book is a brilliant, scholarly work filled with many fascinating vignettes and examples about how to treat the sensitive client. It will teach the therapist how to recognize and work with a highly sensitive client by employing therapeutic techniques to help the client manage their emotions, develop satisfactory relationships, and create a manageable work environment.' - Ted Zeff, PhD, author, The Highly Sensitive Person’s Survival Guide, The Strong, Sensitive Boy

'When it comes to psychotherapy, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. Indeed, patients fundamentally differ in their openness or susceptibility to all kinds of therapies and interventions. Dr. Aron deeply understands this and has spent most of her professional life studying differences between people in their sensitivities to the social and physical world around them. Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person provides an indispensible guide to understanding highly sensitive people―both their frailties and unique strengths―and how to help them turn potential vulnerabilities into real-life advantages.' - Bruce Ellis, John & Doris Norton Endowed Chair, Fathers, Parenting, and Families, University of Arizona; co-developer, Theory of Biological Sensitivity to Context

" importand addition to the literature on people born with 'highly sensitive' (HS) temperament...Every therapist would greatly benefit from reading this book." - Richard House, Ph.D., Therapy Today

"Elaine Aron has emerged as something of a doyenne in the temperament field...[Like] her earlier books, it is comprehensive and well-grounded in research and theory...Aron is a dedicated advocate for her group, and this book adds to her list of unusually compelling and well-considered offerings...[It] will serve as something of a compendium to which I am likely to turn each time I come across a highly sensitive soul, still struggling to accept her predilections." -Rob Pluke, South Africa, New Therapist
