Welcome to The Emotionally Sensitive Person

There’s a very powerful form of psychotherapy called “dialectical behavior therapy” (DBT) that’s been around now for a couple of decades. While many people have heard about it, not everyone understands how its principles can be applied to a lot more than the specific disorder it was designed to treat originally (borderline personality disorder).

That’s why I’m pleased to introduce this blog, The Emotionally Sensitive Person with Dr. Karyn Hall. This blog is focused on topics that would benefit anyone who’s “emotionally sensitive” — you know, people who react emotionally to things in life that are usually a little out of proportion to the actual event or problem. Some might say “over emotionally,” but it’s all a matter of subjectivity.

The blog will tackle topics of how to put DBT practices into every day use, providing many of the tips and tricks of this powerful form of psychotherapy.

Karyn Hall, Ph.D. earned her doctorate in child and adolescent psychology from the University of Virginia and completed her internship at Case Western Reserve University and Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital. She is a licensed Texas psychologist, as well as the co-author of The Power of Validation. You can learn more about her here.

Please give her a warm Psych Central welcome, as I look forward to learning more about dialectical behavior therapy and strategies of benefit to people who may be more emotionally sensitive.
