Highly Sensitive People with Bonnie Triantafillos-Wright, LCSW-C
Have you often been referred to as “too sensitive”? Have you found yourself taking on the moods of those around you? You may have the personality trait known as Highly Sensitive Personality, or HSP. Join Bonnie and learn what it means to be an HSP or HSC (Highly Sensitive Child). She will discuss how this personality trait is manifested in adults and children, as well as what that means in dealing with relationships, work, school, and parenting. Insights will also be given for teachers to understand how HSC manifests in the classroom, and how to work with such students compassionately. You will leave with an understanding of the gifts and challenges of being an HSP, as well as with resources and information to allow you a clear understanding of how to navigate life with this personality trait.
Bonnie is a licensed psychotherapist specializing in grief and loss, with an additional specialty in Highly Sensitive Personality. She graduated from University of Maryland with her MSW and has been working 14 years as a licensed clinician. Through life experience and in raising her own children, Bonnie developed a special skill set in the area of HSP. Bonnie works with clients in identifying this innate set of characteristics that makes HSPs the intuitive, compassionate people that they are, while also educating HSPs in managing their sensitivity in a world of harshness and scrutiny. In particular, Bonnie educates parents about their HSC so that they can adapt in a world where others may not nurture their sensitivity. Bonnie is currently the only therapist in the state of Maryland listed as specializing in Highly Sensitive Personality.
