The Highly Sensitive Person

The Highly Sensitive Person

If you're an HSP, your nervous system is more sensitive to physical and/or emotional stimulation than the general population, and about 20% of you fall in that category. If that rings true for you (or someone you love or interact with) this book is life-changing. Highly recommended. (More about highly sensitive people here.)

The Highly Sensitive Child

The Highly Sensitive Child

Author:
Genre: Personality

This is marketed as the handbook for parenting and caring for highly sensitive children, but I think it's perfect for HSPs who find The Highly Sensitive Person overwhelming because of sensitive content. (For example, the "adult" version goes into great detail about how traumatic physical and emotional abuse is to HSPs. Those chapters were TOUGH.) You can learn everything you need to know about HSPs and HSCs from this book here.

The Highly Sensitive Parent: Be Brilliant in Your Role, Even When the World Overwhelms You

The Highly Sensitive Parent: Be Brilliant in Your Role, Even When the World Overwhelms You

From the publisher: "Parenting is the most valuable and rewarding job in the world, and also one of the most challenging. This is especially true for highly sensitive people. Highly sensitive parents are unusually attuned to their children. They think deeply about every issue affecting their kids and have strong emotions, both positive and negative, in response. For highly sensitive people, parenting offers unique stresses—but the good news is that sensitivity can also be a parent’s most valuable asset, leading to increased personal joy and a closer, happier relationship with their child. Dr. Elaine Aron, world-renowned author of the classic The Highly Sensitive Person and other bestselling books on the trait of high sensitivity, has written an indispensable guide for these parents. Highly sensitive people have the potential to be not just good parents, but great ones. Practical yet warm and positive, this groundbreaking guide will show parents how to build confidence, awareness, and essential coping skills so that they—and their child—can thrive on every stage of the parenting journey."
