We will be happy to send you this information.  We will send via email information about stress which can be found in the DSM V.  We won't be able to send information on interpersonal sensitivity from the DSM because the DSM doesn't really discuss interpersonal sensitivity as a separate diagnosis.  Rather, you will find discussions of the Lack of interpersonality sensitivity as it relates to personality disorders, etc.  For example, you will find discussion of the lack of interpersonal skills when the DSM talks about generalized personality disorder but not a discussion of interpersonal sensitivity. 

We did however, find this e-book in our collection about interpersonal sensitivity:

and you can find lots of information about this in scholarly journal articles.  We went into the psychology libguide at and then went to the articles tab.  We chose the database PsychARTICLES and entered the search terms Interpersonal Sensitivity and we got some great results.  You may also want to try searching the psych databases using the search terms Interpersonal Sensitivity AND Stress as we found some good results with this search string as well.
