For the third time the symposium "Living High Sensitivity" took place in the Park Clinic Heiligenfeld. With over 200 participating doctors, psychologists and other interested parties, the event was again fully booked. "During the two-day event, more than 20 speakers gave helpful impulses to doctors, therapists and people with increased sensitivity," said Anita Schmitt, director of the organizer Akademie Heiligenfeld.
Due to the special processing, highly sensitive people perceive stimuli more intensely and in more detail. Every fifth person in Germany has this increased sensitivity, which is to be understood as a characteristic and not as a disturbance. Highly sensitive people often have excellent intuition and a high level of emotional and social competence. However, people with a "highly sensitive personality" (HSP) are often prone to psychosomatic illnesses such as depression, panic or anxiety disorders due to the permanent overstimulation and processing problems.
The chief doctor of the Park Clinic Heiligenfeld, Doctor medic. Univ. In her opening lecture, Cluj-Napoca Cristina Pohribneac demonstrated the important role of highly sensitive people in our society. In times of constant shortage of time, immediate consumption and often socially intolerable competition, high sensitivity does not only have disadvantages. Highly sensitive people are often integrative, creative and innovative. Due to the above-average interest in ethical issues and also because of their complex perception, people with HSP are valuable members of society, said Pohribneac.
Prof. Dr. Thilo Hinterberger from the University Clinic Regensburg (UKR), cooperation partner of Heiligenfeld Klinken, presented the results of his research on the subject of "Sensitivity and processing problems in psychosomatics". Above all, he emphasized the importance of a concept of high sensitivity "that separates the aspect of sensitivity and possible processing problems of perception". While sensitivity is definitely a health-preserving resource, the processing problems and the resulting psychosomatic disorders must be dealt with in the therapy, says Hinterberger.
In addition to four lectures, the participants were also able to actively participate in a variety of workshops. In addition, practical exercises gave new impulses for a happy life with high sensitivity. The subject areas ranged from high sensitivity and love, to highly sensitive, highly gifted children, to high sensitivity and animals.
In addition to the lectures and workshops, the participants were also offered a varied supporting program. The visitors were enthusiastic about the walking meditation in the park and the soundscapes created by John Nölte-Sayed, creative therapist in the Heiligenfeld clinics, with his "Loop Station". "The varied combination of lectures, workshops, morning meditations and an evening cultural program immersed the participants in a field of education and personal experience from which they can draw for a long time," said the director of the academy, Anita Schmitt. red
