Best Practices for Parents & Teachers of Highly Sensitive Children/Teens Workshop
(A 6 Hour Workshop for Parents & Teachers Seeking to Support Their Highly Sensitive Child/Teen)
Date: Saturday, October 26, 2019 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Location: Q Center, St. Charles, IL
Is your child highly sensitive? Does he or she ask deep questions? Is he or she easily overstimulated (loud noises, scratchy clothing, etc.) or distressed by injustice and the suffering of others? More than 20 percent of children, both boys and girls, have this normal but somewhat uncommon trait. High sensitivity is an innate trait found in one out of five people. It is not an autism spectrum disorder, nor is it a mental illness although the highly sensitive can have other problems, and are often misunderstood and misdiagnosed.
This topic has only been presented at 1440 (CA) and Kripalu (MA) so don’t miss this rare midwest offering! This workshop, based on the book–The Highly Sensitive Child by Elaine Aron, psychologist and pioneer in the study of this trait–will demonstrate research that supports the trait, identify the needs of parents of highly sensitive children and teens, teach practical interventions for everyday challenges, and offer unique community with other parents.
Speakers include: Candy Crawford, MSW, LCSW local therapist who specializes in high sensitivity and teaches with Elaine Aron. Elaine Aron, Ph.D (via webcast) has spent more than 20 years researching and writing on this topic and introducing Mary Beth Nickolaou, BA, MA, School Intervention Specialist.
