HSP Gathering Presenters

“HSPs and the Undervalued Self” with Dr. Elaine Aron, www.hsperson.com

“When I wrote The Undervalued Self, I always had us mind. The undervalued self is a ‘self-state’ or sense of one’s self in a specific type of situation, and I think HSPs are in that state often. It makes us inaccurate about our rank (power) relative to others and also assume situations are about ranking when they may not be. So we need to talk about this together.” – Elaine Aron
Her presentation will explain and answer questions about:

Linking and ranking (something like love and power)
How these relate to chronic stress, depression, anxiety, and shyness
Why we undervalue ourselves and what to do about it
The innate shame reaction
The six self-protections we all use to escape shame and what to do instead
