Touch a Life, Impact a Lifetime: The Therapeutic Value of YOU
Early life adversity and the associated toxic stress literally gets under our skin and is embedded in our biology. Authentic nurturing experiences during early life, or the lack of them, are directly linked to mental health outcomes. The sense of touch plays a salient role in social relationships with important neurodevelopmental and psycho-socio-emotional outcomes. Healing presence and authenticity underlie caring actions, attitudes and behaviors. This talk will introduce the biological underpinnings of our unique therapeutic value in the clinical setting.
