The purpose of the Foundation for the Study of Highly Sensitive Persons is twofold:
- To educate the public about the trait
- To fund new research on it
At the moment, efforts to educate the public will be the making of a film suitable for broad distribution to television networks and film festivals. Future films might be on highly sensitive children, the effects of sensitivity on close relationships (a research area with which two of the board members are experts), and the ways organizations can best make use of their highly sensitive employees.
The research side will advance an already well-established body of research. Donations might be used, for example, to fund research expenses for new studies or the analysis of substantial existing data sets (these include laboratory behavioral studies and genetic and neuroimaging data).
