UNIVERSITY OF ESSEX: HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE

Keeping in Touch: An Interprofessional Conference Considering The Use of Touch in Therapy

University of Essex Friday June 14th 9.0- 16.45

What does it mean to ‘keep in touch’? 

To ‘keep in touch’ can literally mean to hold or guide someone and it can mean keeping in touch with inner processes so that unconscious communication can be felt and, when possible, put into words. Health care professional are often cautioned about the use of ‘touch’ with their clients, yet touch can be experienced as part of the healing process. In health and social care environments therapists consider that staying in touch with the clients’ emotional experience is a cornerstone of their therapeutic work. In the increasingly rushed and pressurised environments of health and social care delivery is ‘keeping in touch’, working with body and mind, becoming more difficult?

Join us on 14th June to consider touch from different professional and theoretical points of view
