Dr. Zeff Talks about the Benefits of Sensitivity

Two Seasons, by Bill Heine

Douglas Eby, of the intergalactic-sized website Talent Development Resources, interviewed Dr. Ted Zeff, author of The Highly Sensitive Person’s Survival Guide, on the topic of how people can benefit from being highly sensitive. (Click on the little blue circle under the stars to start the audio on or access it from Douglas Eby’s website.)

Dr. Zeff covers a variety of fascinating topics within the overall topic. Although I already know a lot of what was covered in the discussion, it also showed me all-new facets and lots to think about.

If you’re in a space where the benefits of being sensitive are hard to find. Are you feeling lost in a big crowd of family members? Or overwhelmed by the demands — self-imposed or otherwise — of the holiday season? Are you feeling lonely or on hold? Dr. Ted may have some soothing wisdom, just for you.

Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing during this time, I send you strength and joy. Stand tall.

    Grace, I am entranced by the photo – it seems to dance before my eyes in a most entertaining way!

    And, thanks to the strength I gained by learning I’m an HSP and that that’s ok, and with the support of this site, I had a lovely quiet trauma-free Christmas Eve and Day. Others have been so as well, but there was an extra sense of peace and comfort this year.

    Thank you! And I hope you and yours had a most lovely Christmas as well!

    P.S. I read Dr. Zeff’s book a while back but I just reserved it at the library again — a brush-up will stand me in good stead in the coming year.
