THERAPEUTIC TOUCH

05 Nov 2018 5:01 PM | CSWA Administrator (Administrator)

In this age of risk management and ethics in practice, we have a dilemma, to touch or not to touch. Like most in life, absolutist thinking just doesn't work. If you recall from your training the work of John Bowlby, touch was a lifeline. Guidelines to aid us in appropriate use of healing touch are outlined in this article from the Zur Institute. This topic is worthy of a revisit especially in today's world.
