Working in groups is often more difficult for HSP-ers due to all the incentives they receive and lose control over the situation and they feel uneasy. Offering structure is often the best remedy for HSP adults and children.
The expressions and characteristics of high sensitivity are no different for children than for adults, but the perception of high sensitivity can be more intense for children. It is therefore important that parents and the environment of the child are well informed about high sensitivity so that recognition and acceptance occurs.
The experience of emotions is intense for highly sensitive adults and children, so it is important that positive and negative emotions can be expressed in a safe environment towards parents, family, relatives and teachers. An HSP employee who can not or may not express himself can lead to a negative self-image, less self-confidence and in the longer term will be the cause of health complaints.
HSP adults and children process stimuli and impressions on a deeper level, they quickly see details and nuances, they feel the atmosphere in their environment and also feel the emotions of others. They are caring and (self-) conscious, they have alertness and a great sense of justice, which means they can be sad or angry faster. They dream and fantasize with great empathy and are creative, versatile, talented and have many ideas.
HSP adults and children like to be alone, they work at their own pace and need regularity. They are perfectionistic and often fear anxious, which means they perform less. They often feel less understood, different and inferior than average and have the chance to be bullied. Too many stimuli and impressions can be over-stimulated, emotional and irritated. It is then advisable to withdraw from an HSP-er, this gives peace and has a very positive effect.
High sensitivity is a personal character trait and this requires extra attention and understanding. That is why information is essential for everyone's well-being to deal with it well.
Give the HSP child the space to express emotions, be sad, angry, happy or enthusiastic. By being able to express yourself in a respectful and safe environment, a safe situation is created.
It is recommended that parents inform an association if they know that the child is highly sensitive. This is in the interests of the child, but also of the coach, supervisor, team members and the association and draw them to the HSP Point website. Acceptance is very important.
