Not all Touch Has Positive Impact

While most of the postings here talk about the power of touch, not all touch is positive, of course.  It can be equally “powerful” and life changing to experience touch as sexual assault.  

A New York University researcher has combed through studies to analyze the results of sexual assault touch on lives of those who were victimized and suffered.

Children Need Love to Thrive

I’ve read a couple of interesting articles on how orphanages are horrible places to raise children, because of the lack of love and touch. 

For me, it raises the question of what institutionalizing our elderly is doing? And I’m not asking that as a thretorical question, drawing a false parallel between the two.  I’m genuinely interested in seeing what studies there are about this topic.
