Physical Touch & Orphanage Grads: 3rd Interview with Patty Jewell

Here’s the third installment in our series of interviews with Patty Jewell. This session examines the subject of physical affection with young people who may have experienced abuse as children. Physical touch can be so important for growth, and the feeling of being loved and safe — yet these young people may have only ever experienced affection in a sexual way when they were younger. Patty discusses how staff can set boundaries to help our youth feel safe.
