Recipes that Cure Touch Hunger – Free E-book
Dr. Dale Glaebach is one of the first clinical evolutionary psychotherapists in the United States. A graduate of Norwich University, Vermont, his primary focus is to decipher the meaning of optimal child development. After seeing an In Touch newsletter, distributed by Versandra Kennebrew founder of the Touch Is Great movement, he wanted to know how he could help advance the Touch is Great mission to eradicate touch deprivation in America.“I immediately shared an idea about an e-book with Dr. Dale. I was looking for a tool that could reach people of various backgrounds and help them break through the numbness and begin to feel,” said Kennebrew. “Recipes that Cure Touch Deprivation”, co-authored by the dynamic duo Versandra Kennebrew and Dr. Dale Glaebach is that book. It’s an easy read but it assists the readers in understanding the physiologic and psychological affects of touch or the lack there of and it speaks to the fond memories of comforting or nurturing touch as a child.
