The Ethics of Touch: Establishing and Maintaining Appropriate Boundaries In Service to People with Developmental Disabilities. Dave Hingsburger & Mary Harber, $116.95 DVD

All human beings need touch. We need to be held. We need to hold. This training package looks at the delicate issue of touch. Those who provide direct care to people with developmental disabilities are often asked to be in private places performing intimate services. From bathing to toileting to dressing, we are necessarily in close proximity to those we serve. Given this situation, it is imperative that staff be aware of how to provide these services while maintaining appropriate professional boundaries. How do we appropriately express affection toward those we serve? This video suggests new and healthy ways of helping people with disabilities fulfill their deepest needs. The package includes over two hours of lecture on 'touch', 'privacy' and 'boundaries' by renowned trainer Dave Hingsburger and a manual, co-authored by Mary Harber of the Sexual Health Resource Network, which staff can use to participate in the training.

Play, as a vital element in the human experience, is one of the pillars of occupational therapy and is equal in importance to self-care and work. Fostering an ability to play creatively provides a foundation for healthy interactions with others, builds skills in innovative problem solving, and enables a person to consider alternative possibilities in intellectual arenas. Expensive toys and props are unimportant. Playfulness and imaginative creativity with the materials at hand are all that are needed!
