ReadAbsorbthink! Lecture – Why should I trust you ?

October 30, 2021


A significant aspect of the therapeutic process is helping individuals experience safety in a relationship. The therapeutic relationship, like most others, is based on trust. But unlike relationships outside the therapy room, this one often appears to be one sided.

Join us for this month’s ReadAbsorbThink! Lecture where we take a dive into the therapist’s experiences, both as a service user and a provider, exploring the many questions around how trust is built, broken, repaired, and sometimes lost. The discussion is open to everyone who has struggled to ask and answer “Why should I trust you?”

The invitation is to learn and share what the books may not always be able to teach us about perhaps the most essential but difficult experience we have in relationships – Trust!
