Und über das Sozialverhalten kann die Körperkontaktstörung Einfluss auf alle Lebensbereiche – wie etwa Spiel- und Lernverhalten, Umgang mit Gleichaltrigen oder Konfliktverhalten – nehmen, sie stellt damit eine weitflächige Bedrohung der seelischen Gesundheit dar.

Kinderärzte, Kinder- und Jugendlichen-Psychotherapeuten) erklärt theoretische Grundinformationen, empirische Ergebnisse, praktische Diagnose- und Behandlungsmöglichkeiten (letztere mit einem Schwerpunkt auf verhaltenstherapeutischer, kanalspezifischer Intervention und positiver Konfrontation mit Körperkontakt) sowie ethische Aspekte.
