Once the basic premise of self psychology - that from birth to death we are utterly dependent on one another for the provision of psychological experiences essential to selfhood - is accepted, the need to trust others and to be trusted by them assumes an essential role in mental life. In this work, Doris Brothers places trust at the very centre of the psychoanalytic endeavour.
