OK, thread on TOUCH.

Posted by muffled on November 10, 2006, at 15:46:30

I have noticed that there seems to be differing opinions on touch in therapy, or even in general.
IMO touch is very dangerous. Touch should be handled with the utmost care. And I think there is times in therapy when a pat on the back is ok. And times where it causes alot of trouble. And how the heck is a T to know? And as well, there is times when touch may be difficult, but useful.
And I mean innocent touch. Pat on knee, pat on back, pat on hand. Mebbe safe hug if SAFE and not long. Sitting beside, arm on shoulders. Those MAY be OK in certain times. But sometimes I think touch is necessary for some. It is a part of healing. It can show the person that the T doesn't recoil at their touch. Even if they know stuff bout you. It can show that you not disgusting. That you don't hurt others that touch you. So thats what I think. I am rather struggling with this. I feel real bad, cuz my T patted my shoulder in the nicest way, and part of me was happy, but part of me got real upset. So now I told her not to touch me(in a fax of course) unless I say its OK. And I hope I didn't hurt her feelings, or make her feel repulsive, cuz it would really hurt me if someone said it to me. Yeah, I feel real bad bout it. So anyways. Anyone else got any touch stuff?
But better put a trigger warning on it if its scarey. Thanks.
