Touch may well be one of the least understood or talked about subjects in the helping professions. A discussion on the importance and ethics of positive, caring, and appropriate touch in professions such as teaching, nursing and counselling is long overdue. Touch in the Helping Professions delivers just that, weaving together scholarly evidence, research and clinical practice from a wide range of perspectives encompassing philosophy, theology, psychology, and anthropology to challenge assumptions about the role of touch in the helping professions. The contributors to the volume focus not only on the overarching roles of gender, age, culture and life experience, but go beyond to encompass canine-assisted therapy, touch deprivation, sacred objects, as well as key ethical considerations. The prevailing lack of dialogue, due to fear of contravening ethical boundaries, has stood in the way of an open and responsible discussion on the use of touch in therapy. Touch in the Helping Professions is a welcome and much needed contribution to the field-a window onto a fundamental need. This book is published in English. - Cet ouvrage offre un ensemble de donnees probantes et de resultats cliniques a l'appui du toucher dans le developpement physique et emotionnel. Il est structure selon trois axes : la theorie sur le toucher; la pratique du toucher dans un contexte de therapie, et les questions ethiques. Il aborde la question du role du genre, de l'age, de la culture et de l'experience de vie, des sujets comme la zootherapie, la privation sensorielle, des objets sacres, et des considerations d'ordre ethique. Les approches variees - philosophie, theologie, psychologie, anthropologie - remettent en question les presuppositions, offrent un contexte historico-culturelprofessionnel, et font appel a des donnees primaires. Les collaborateurs soutiennent que le toucher sain et non sexuel n'est pas suffisamment enseigne dans le cadre de la formation professionnelle. Cette absence de dialogue - engendree par la crainte de depasser des bornes ethiques, fait en sorte qu'une discussion ouverte et responsable sur l'utilisation du toucher dans un cadre therapeutique ne peut avoir lieu, alors meme qu'elle contribuerait aux balises theoriques de notre comprehension de cet enjeu fondamental. Ce livre est publie en anglais.
