This thorough and well-researched book contains many techniques to help transform the HSP's life. Even if the student implements only a portion of the many practical and innovative methods that are presented in the book for calming the sensitive nervous system, the HSP will live a happier, more tranquil and productive life." -Ted Zeff, PhD, author of The Highly Sensitive Person's Survival Guide, The Strong, Sensitive Boy, and The Power of Sensitivity "Julie Bjelland MFT is a remarkable therapist! She has developed great expertise and success in her work with HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) clients. She has used research, clinical experience and her HSP gifts to develop a unique and effective therapeutic approach to help her HSP clients overcome the obstacles of living in a world that is too often not supportive of HSP needs, and to help HSPs feel accepted and valued rather than different or 'wrong'. Now she brings her talent and work to a greater audience with this book. It offers the content of her approach with a focus on the necessary follow-up to make real change in your life. The book also offers the benefit of Julie's warm, compassionate voice and her caring." - Jeannie Wolitzer, LMFT *Two companion workbook journals are highly recommended that have been specifically created for this books 8-week program: "Positives Journal" and "Challenges and Growth Journal," by Julie Bjelland, LMFT.
