Aron, E: Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person
Improving Outcomes for That Minority of People Who Are the Majority of Clients
Defines the term 'highly sensitive' for the professional researcher and practitioner. This book dispels common misconceptions about the relationship between sensitivity and other personality traits, such as introversion and shyness, and also defines the trait for the benefit of both the clinician and patient.
Elaine Aron, PhD, has published numerous articles in academic journals on the highly sensitive person, including surveys, laboratory experiments, and neuroimaging studies. Her writings on other topics include books, chapters, and journal articles on close relationships as well as co-authoring a statistics textbook.

Dr. Aron maintains a psychotherapy practice in the San Francisco Bay Area, teaches public and professional workshops, and continues her research on the trait of sensitivity.
