To Touch is to Live: The Need for Genuine Affection in an Impersonal World




Written by Mariana Caplan.

This book explores the issue of inadequate touch in child-raising, early education, family culture and our personal relationships. It highlights why touch is essential for our mental, physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, and why touch deprivation can lead to mental and physical illness, addiction, violence and abuse as a way to fill the void.
