Becoming Trustworthy: The Ethical Foundations of Psychotherapy

09:00 AM - 12:00 PM CT
Additional Details

This presentation by Jon G. Allen, PhD, uses trust as a framework for evaluating the treatment relationship and shifts attention from the typical focus on patients’ problems with trust to the personal and professional development of trustworthiness in the therapist.


Trust and trustworthiness are inherently ethical concepts, and a rich literature has evolved in the philosophical literature over recent decades.


This presentation will integrate the science and philosophy to inform clinicians about the fundamental role of trust and trustworthiness in psychotherapy and other relationships.
