Id like to present a new paradigm in thinking about human relationships. This book focuses on Interpersonal Connection. As infants we first experience connection through our senses through touch, sight, sound and our emotions are awaked. The barriers between self and other are not yet formed at this stage. Its interesting that infants who are deprived of touch eventually fail to thrive, develop and will eventually stop eating, stop growing, stop making eye contact, withdraw and die. This is how important Connection is.
