This work challenges us to rethink our social norms about classroom and workplace touching. We’ve moved so far away from touch for fear of harrassment that it’s difficult to reintroduce touch into these environments. I’d love to hear about school programs that are working directly to acknowledge the benefits of touch, and how they communicate the intent and best practices involved.
