Room 1.050 Howden House, Union Street, Sheffield, S1 2SH
This masterclass will draw upon Lisa’s doctoral research and will explore intimacy in professional adult-child relationships with a particular focus on the use of touch in practice. Drawing upon examples from the research, we will discuss some of the myths, misunderstanding and meaningful uses of touch in practice.
