About Dr. Elaine Aron

Dr. Aron earned her M.A. from York University in Toronto in clinical psychology and her Ph.D. at Pacifica Graduate Institute in clinical depth psychology as well as interning at the C. G. Jung Institute in San Francisco. Besides beginning the study of the innate temperament trait of high sensitivity in 1991, she, along with her husband Dr. Arthur Aron, are two of the leading scientists studying the psychology of love and close relationships. They are also pioneers in studying both sensitivity and love using functional magnetic resonance imaging. She maintains a small psychotherapy practice in Mill Valley and San Francisco.

(If you have access to library materials on line, search PsychInfo and you will also find articles written by other psychologists on sensitivity or sensory-processing sensitivity as well as on related ideas such as "biological sensitivity to context." Search for "sensitivity.")

The three articles titled "Sensory-Processing Sensitivity and Its Relation to Introversion and Emotionality," "Revisiting Jung's Concept of Innate Sensitiveness," and "Adult Shyness: The Interaction of Temperamental Sensitivity and a Negative Childhood Environment" can be obtained easily online through university libraries, or perhaps from the websites of the journals themselves. If you are a researcher and cannot obtain these three online, reprints can be obtained by sending $5.00 to cover postage to the PO Box address below. We cannot provide the chapters at all, or the articles to the general public, because we don't own the copyright. (Reprints of the articles are sent to fellow researchers as a professional courtesy.)
