Interview #11 for Sensitive Men Rising, the first film about sensitive men and directed by Sensitive-The Untold Story director, Will Harper, flowed very well today as I was joined by Daniel Miller, PhD, a therapist working with highly sensitive persons, including sensitive men, on a range of issues.
Dan has recently defended his PhD dissertation on the topic of identity development in sensitive men so it was a natural to explore more about his work, his findings, and his keen insights. As it turns out, and as we will all find out more about in Sensitive Men Rising, the sense of difference, of feeling out of place and perhaps marginalized, is common across age ranges among sensitive men.
So, too is the relief many of us feel and experience when we learn that our sensitive natures are a natural and normally occurring adaptation in humans that allows 1 in 5 to be more intuitive, to notice subtleties in our environments, to notice when others are suffering or in distress, and to have complex enough minds to reflect on what we experience, in service to an innate creativity and sense of compassion many of us embody.
Dr. Miller is a young leader among sensitive men and we are so very honored to include him in our film!!
