Are you or your child considered “shy” or “sensitive” by others? Do noise and confusion quickly overwhelm you? Do you notice or enjoy delicate scents, tastes, sounds or works of art? Does you child seem sensitive, easily over-stimulated, or have inexplicable meltdowns? You or your child may be a Highly Sensitive Person, like 20% of the entire human population.  Being highly sensitive is a character trait, discovered in 1991 by Elaine Aron, and has changed the lives of many people around the world. The trait typically manifests in people being creative, intelligent, empathetic and wise. About 1 in 5 people are highly sensitive – but most don’t know it. To learn about being highly sensitive and what you can do to thrive successfully in the world, please join us for this documentary screening followed by a Q & A with Dr. Elaine Aron and the filmmakers.

Elaine Aron began the study of the innate temperament trait of high sensitivity in 1991. She is one of the leading scientists studying the psychology of love and close relationships and the author of several books, including, The Highly Sensitive Person: How To Thrive When The World Overwhelms You and The Highly Sensitive Child.
