ReAttach & Self Compassion in working with High Sensitive Clients


ReAttach and Compassion Focused therapy have a few things in common. Both interventions could be placed within positive psychology.  Both methods are not-judging and  include making contact in a friendly manner. I have a special interest in regulating arousal with High Sensitive Clients. I will present some case studies, reflections and findings that could be helpful in future research on ReAttach
