Description

Empower your highly sensitive child to unlock the power of sensitivity as they learn to understand and identify their emotions, express their needs calmly, and create helpful routines—with this fun, empowering activity book for highly sensitive kids ages 6 and up.

An estimated 15 to 20 percent of people are born with a nervous system that is more aware of (and reactive to) sensory stimuli. Being a highly sensitive person (HSP) is not a diagnosis in need of treatment, and in fact comes with many strengths—highly sensitive people are known for being empathetic, creative, passionate, and intelligent. However, since a highly sensitive child experiences the world a little differently, they may easily become overwhelmed or anxious. Luckily, there are practical, approachable solutions to help ease this feeling of overwhelm.

This warm, engaging workbook, written by a licensed child therapist and parent coach, is filled with activities designed to help children develop skills to prevent overstimulation as they learn to harness the strengths that come with their sensitivity. From identifying their feelings to challenging negative thinking patterns, kids, guided by their parents, will practice skills that will help them feel calmer and more in control—forming better relationships with family and friends and easing problems at school.

A bonus section at the end of each chapter encourages kids and their families to practice the skills they've learned for even greater success.

The Highly Sensitive Child’s Workbook features:

  • SIX ESSENTIAL SKILLS TO FIND CALM AND CONTROL, including learning to identify feelings and needs and practicing skills to ease stress in the moment.
  • 50 FUN, SCIENCE-BACKED EXERCISES to help parents utilize art, games, and role-playing, to teach children the skills needed to navigate life’s ups and downs.
  • AN AFFIRMING APPROACH to help you empower your highly sensitive child as they learn practical, lifelong skills to thrive in school, family and friendships, and life.
  • TIPS TO PERSONALIZE ACTIVITIES to support your child’s growth and meet their needs in a variety of different scenarios.
  • BONUS GAMES AND ACTIVITIES to play with family and friends to keep children engaged as they reinforce and practice the skills learned in each chapter.
