Part 2 of Sensitive Feelers and Empath Group: A Space for Asian & South Asian American Adults to share their relational Sensitive Feelers and Empath experiences, receive support, and learn skills.

This support group was formerly called “APIDA Highly Sensitive Person Group – Relationships (Part 2)”. It has been offering group members a space to share their experiences and learn to navigate their sensitivity, including how their sensitivity intersects with their relationships. However, it has come to our attention that the term “Highly Sensitive Person” (or HSP) that was first coined by Psychologist Elaine Aron has been used by some professionals to foster stigma against the autistic community, associating the term with an ableist sentiment. Here at YCC, inclusivity and diversity are our core values, and we have relied on individual participants’ self-identification of HSP regardless of having other identities/diagnoses or no diagnosis. After much consideration, we have decided to step away from using the term HSP while still upholding a space where empathic and sensitive experiences can still be discussed. We will continue to provide a welcoming space for all those who identify as an empath or sensitive feeler or simply want to process their experiences of sensitivity.
