The Brain of the Highly Sensitive Person with Drs. Esther Bergsma Unapologetically Sensitive

    • Mental Health

Drs. Bergsma, a Dutch expert on High Sensitivity, discusses research from her book: The Brain of the Highly Sensitive Person. She explains the biological survival benefits of the trait in animals.  We talk about social rejection, and the negative messages HSPs receive around their traits.  Esther takes 7 negative perceptions and talks about the corresponding talents (strengths) for each perception.  We talk about common misdiagnoses for HSPs and why practitioners benefit from knowing about the trait.
