Die Bedeutung von Introvertierten in einer lauten Welt
Author: Susan Cain
Publisher: Riemann Verlag
Selbstsicheres Auftreten und die Beherrschung von Small Talk sind nicht alles. Susan Cains glänzendes Plädoyer für die Qualitäten der Stillen. „Ein leerer Topf klappert am lautesten“. Aber wer der Welt etwas Bedeutendes schenken will, benötigt Zeit und Sorgfalt, um es in Stille reifen zu lassen. „Still“ ist ein Plädoyer für die Ruhe, die in unserer Welt des Marktgeschreis und der Klingeltöne zu verschwinden droht. Und für leise Menschen, die lernen sollten, zu ihrem „So-Sein“ zu stehen. Ohne sie hätten wir heute keine Relativitätstheorie, keinen „Harry Potter“, keine Klavierstücke Chopins, und auch die Suchmaschine „Google“ wäre nie entwickelt worden. „Still“ baut eine Brücke zwischen den Welten, kritisiert aber das gesellschaftliche Ungleichgewicht zugunsten der Partylöwen und Dampfplauderer. Es herrscht eine „extrovertierte Ethik“, die stille Wasser zwingt, sich anzupassen oder unterzugehen. Ihre Eigenschaften – Ernsthaftigkeit, Sensibilität und Scheu – gelten eher als Krankheitssymptome denn als Qualitäten. Zu unrecht, sagt Susan Cain, und stellt sich gegen den Trend, der „selbstbewusstes Auftreten“ verherrlicht. „Still“ ist das Kultbuch für Introvertierte, hilft aber auch Extrovertierten, ihre Mitmenschen besser zu verstehen.

Brillant, lakonisch und bitterkomisch: Das Psychogramm unserer Zeit. Mann und Frau. Mutter und Tochter. Freunde und Freundinnen. In zwölf Stories erkundet Kristen Roupenian das Lebensgefühl von Menschen in einer schönen neuen Welt. Fragile Hierarchien und prekäre Lebenssituationen auf der einen, das Bedürfnis nach Sicherheit und Spaß auf der anderen Seite: Alles ist möglich, aber wer sind wir, wenn wir alles sein können? Mit so viel Einsicht in die Wünsche und Ängste des Einzelnen hat man noch nicht über das Zusammenleben in dieser neuen Zeit gelesen - einer Zeit, in der alles greifbar ist, und es doch immer schwerer wird, auch nur das Geringste davon zu erreichen. „Einzigartig – zum ersten Mal werden die Befindlichkeiten der Millennials beschrieben.“ Washington Post
Improving Outcomes for That Minority of People Who Are the Majority of Clients
Author: Elaine N. Aron
Dr. Elaine Aron’s newest book, Psychotherapy and the Highly Sensitive Person, redefines the term “highly sensitive” for the professional researcher and practitioner. She dispels common misconceptions about the relationship between sensitivity and other personality traits, such as introversion and shyness, and further defines the trait for the benefit of both the clinician and patient. Readers will learn to assess for the trait, distinguish it from clinical diagnoses such as panic disorder or avoidant personality disorder, understand how sensitivity may change the presentation of a problem such as depression or shyness, and generally inform, validate, and improve the quality of life for these clients. She pays particular attention to self-esteem issues and helping patients separate effects of their innate temperament from problems due to their personal learning histories. Dr. Aron keeps both patient and practitioner in mind as she suggests ways to adapt treatment for highly sensitive persons and how to deal with the typical issues that arise. Three appendices provide the HSP Scale, a summary of the extensive research on this innate trait, and its relation to DSM diagnoses. Through this helpful guide, therapists will see a marked improvement in their ability to assist highly sensitive clients.
Understanding and Managing Relationships When the World Overwhelms You
Author: Elaine N. Aron, Ph.D.
Do you fall in love hard, but fear intimacy? Are you sick of being told that you are “too sensitive”? Do you struggle to respect a less-sensitive partner? Or have you given up on love, afraid of being too sensitive or shy to endure its wounds? Statistics show that 50 percent of what determines divorce is genetic temperament. And, if you are one of the 20 percent of people who are born highly sensitive, the risk of an unhappy relationship is especially high. Your finely tuned nervous system, which picks up on subtleties and reflects deeply, would be a romantic asset if both you and your partner understood you better. But without that understanding, your sensitivity is likely to be making your close relationships painful and complicated. Based on Elaine N. Aron’s groundbreaking research on temperament and intimacy, The Highly Sensitive Person in Love offers practical help for highly sensitive people seeking happier, healthier romantic relationships. From low-stress fighting to sensitive sexuality, the book offers a wealth of practical advice on making the most of all personality combinations. Complete with illuminating self-tests and the results of the first survey ever done on sex and temperament, The Highly Sensitive Person in Love will help you discover a better way of living and loving. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Jede(r) Fünfte ist besonders empfindsam oder, wie man mittlerweile sagt, hochsensibel. Ein vielfach bewährter Test macht es den Leserinnen und Lesern dieses Praxisbuches leicht, herauszubekommen, ob sie dazu gehören. Wie aber lässt sich die vermeintliche Schwäche in eine Stärke verwandeln? Wie werden hochsensible Menschen glücklich? Auch dazu macht die bekannte dänische Psychotherapeutin zahlreiche neue, im Alltag erprobte Vorschläge. Hochsensible Menschen haben ein besonders empfindliches Nervensystem. Es fällt ihnen schwerer als anderen, unangenehme oder belastende Eindrücke auszublenden. In stressigen Situationen reagieren sie stärker und werden schneller krank. Dafür nehmen sie mehr Abstufungen wahr, besitzen eine rege Fantasie und eine ausgeprägte Vorstellungskraft. Für ihr Wohlergehen benötigen sie vor allem ein verlässliches Umfeld und eine wohldosierte Reizstruktur. Dann steht ihrem Wohlbefinden wenig im Wege. Womöglich ist ihr Glücksempfinden sogar intensiver als das "gewöhnlicher" Menschen.
