The Development and Nature of the Construct Touch Avoidance.
Andersen, Peter A.; Leibowitz, Kenneth
Environmental Psychology and Nonverbal Behavior, v3 n2 p107-16 Win 1978
Touch avoidance is a nonverbal communication predisposition that consists of same sex touch avoidance and opposite sex touch avoidance. It is related to communication apprehension, self-disclosure, self-esteem, and a series of cultural role variables. These seem to have the greatest relationship with the measures of touch avoidance.
