Touch is an integral part of human life. But physical contact is not always appropriate nor helpful. In fact, just as touch can help us feel more connected with ourselves and those around us, it can also leave us feeling disrespected, confused, and violated. In this webinar, we’ll explore the role of touch in the Eat Breathe Thrive Program and how to safely and effectively use touch to build rapport with participants.
In this exclusive webinar, you will:
- Explore research on the therapeutic value of touch, specifically as it applies to individuals with mental illness and a history of trauma
- Discuss how cultural, gender, and psychological factors affect individuals’ experience of physical contact
- Identify a set of best practices for when and how to incorporate touch in the Eat Breathe Thrive Program
