    This is the first book in the UK to explore the problems involved in ‘touching’ children in an educational environment. The book uses real-life examples taken from groundbreaking research into the mentality of today’s risk culture, and highlights a maddening state of affairs in which ordinary well-meaning professionals feel they cannot offer even very young children basic levels of comforting or affection. This book also examines and explains where the law stands on these issues, and keeps its key focus on practice throughout.
