A highly sensitive person has a deeply attuned nervous system, meaning we pick up on the subtleties some miss, and we feel the things we pick up on more profoundly. Because of this, the empath has a greater likelihood of being traumatized by their experience. In today's episode, Kristen sits down with Dr. Anna Kress. They discuss the complexity of trauma and how the highly sensitive person can navigate the residual effects trauma has on the body.
