Purpose: To follow up and evaluate the Peaceful Touch training from the perspective of teachers after three years of implementation. Peaceful Touch (PT) is professional development training for early childhood educators serving to raise awareness about the benefits of nurturing touch Goal: To document teacher insights of their own growing awareness and intentional use of nurturing touch based on the following themes: (a) Evolution of teacher awareness of their own intention of touch. (b) Development of interactions and connections with children and the impact they have on the cultivation of a healthy classroom. (c) Adult mindfulness about touch and the implications on children s development of body-ownership and awareness. Implications: (a) As teachers became increasingly insightful and sensitive to the use of PT through the day, they discovered a direct effect the touch had on the children. It would seem touch mindfulness in teachers led to touch mindfulness in children, fostering interpersonal sensitivity and prosocial behaviors among children and in turn supporting children s learning. (b) The continued cultivation of understanding about PT supported by the director as well as teachers has allowed PT to flourish and become a central part of the school s philosophy. Teachers continue to use PT intentionally in their daily practice and have become increasingly sensitive to it s role in supporting the development of children.
