The Territory of Trust

 

BY JOHN M. OLDHAM, MD

Trust is a key weathervane guiding every aspect of our interpersonal world.

Just trust me

Who is trustworthy and who is not?  Who is the one I’m not so sure about, and how do I find out?  Am I trustworthy?  How often do we say, “Look, I’m going to be honest with you”?  Does that imply that we’re not always so revealing? Or we hear, “Just trust me, OK?”   Ok, if we know you to be trustworthy.  But what if we don’t?

We posted a blog on trust in January.  Now we’re asking you to explore the  The Territory of Trust.

The Territory of Trust virtual webinar

Specifically, we’re inviting you to join us at this year’s John M. Oldham National Mental Health Symposium.  I chair this annual event—generously named after me—for The Menninger Clinic and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Baylor College of Medicine.

Although prior programs have been held in person in Houston, Texas, this symposium will be a virtual Zoom event.   Scheduled for Friday, April 23, 2021,  it features an outstanding roster of leading mental health experts.
