In this revised edition, the author considers the important issue of when the use of touch is justifiable in working with clients. A handshake or pat on the shoulder may appear to be a simple way of expressing support, but under some circumstances even these seemingly benign gestures can sabotage the therapeutic work. In this important contribution, Alison Ball summarizes the essentials of what all practitioners should know about a topic central to therapy. Her concise, yet comprehensive account provides a thorough grounding in the salient issues.
