感觉加工敏感性（Sensory Processing Sensitivity，SPS）指个体中央神经系统的敏感性，代表了对物理环境、社会、情绪刺激的深层次认知加工程度。感觉加工敏感性较高的个体从一开始便能更容易关注到环境中的刺激，进而对这些信息进行更深层次、更复杂层面的加工。由于他们对刺激加工过程更加彻底，因此他们的发展可能也更容易受到积极与消极环境的影响，也就是对环境有更高的“易感性”。本报告将介绍晏妮博士课题组如何通过纵向追踪、日记研究、实验室行为实验来探索感觉加工敏感性在婚姻系统和亲子互动系统中对环境刺激的敏感性及其潜在机制。此研究结果对于进一步理解感觉加工敏感性特质及其作用机制奠定了理论基础，并对在家庭养育和教育实践中制定有效的干预项目提供了重要指示。
Sensory processing sensitivity (SPS) is a genetically predisposition that is characterized by deep cognitive processing of physical, social, and emotional stimuli. Due to these characteristics, individuals high in SPS tend to develop proportionally worse in negative environment and benefit more from positive environment than those low in SPS. In this seminar, Dr. Yan will introduce their research on the role of both parents’ and children’s sensory processing sensitivity in marriage system and parent-child interaction system through longitudinal study, diary study, and laboratory behavioral experiment. These results may lay a theoretical foundation for our further understanding of the underlying mechanisms of sensory processing sensitivity, and provide implications for the development of effective family intervention projects.
