On the Importance of Touching.
Anderson, David W.
Contemporary Education, v58 n4 p201-05 Sum 1987
This essay argues that positive physical interaction is a natural expression of humanness and a fitting demonstration of the teacher's attitude of acceptance, caring, and concern for the individual. The discussion reviews the ideas of various psychologists and educators on the importance of physical contact to child development. (MT)
