Ask A Psychologist: Touch

As children, we learn that touch is one of our five physical senses that we use to interact with our environment. But touch also plays an important role in our emotional and mental well-being. Consultant clinical psychologist Paul Jambunathan and social psychologist Dr Goh Pei Hwa join the show to discuss the importance of touch, and what happens when we are deprived of touch.
