HSP Workshops

Workshops for Teachers

This workshop has been designed to specifically train teachers how to approach and teach HSP and HI students. These students are often lumped together in a "gifted" class with little or no learning differentiation implemented. However, these students have remarkable learning differences that are often overlooked in the mistaken belief that because they are gifted, their specific learning styles need not be acknowledged and addressed.

Workshops for Parents

Learning that you have an HSP or HI child can be scary and daunting at first. However, once you recognize that this is a personality trait and not an illness, syndrome, or disorder, it becomes much easier to recognize how special your child truly is. It is a wonderful trait that will stand your child in good stead for being an empath and a leader as he or she grows older. Nurturing this trait as a parent and helping your child to understand and embrace it will go a long way toward preventing anxiety, shame, and depression in adulthood.

Workshops for Corporate Managers

Managing an HSP or HI employee can be challenging if as a manager, you expect this type of employee to enter the corporate culture as is and thrive. These types of employees have a great deal to offer their organization, but in order to leverage their immense capacity for creative and effective work, they may need support in managing collegial relationships, stress, deadlines, and pressure in the workplace in order to minimize their tendency to become overwhelmed. Doing so will allow them to shine as the hardworking, dedicated, and creative workers they are.
