"What the heck is professional cuddling?" To many the idea of a professional cuddler, and Cuddle Parties, is new and innovative. A panel of professional cuddlers will offer insight into what they do and why it's valuable. The panel will discuss consent practices as related to therapeutic touch; benefits for mental health regulation & trauma recovery with case studies; information about specific experiential therapeutic practices; potential collaboration with psychotherapists; and research related to Oxytocin and touch.

Optional: participants will be invited to an opportunity to witness and/or experience non-sexual therapeutic touch at a separate event later that evening,December 17th at 6pm https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cuddle-party-and-consent-workshop-tickets-80575648935?aff=guild .
