Most relationship problems are essentially trust issues, explains psychotherapist David Richo. Whether it’s fear of commitment, insecurity, jealousy, or a tendency to be controlling, the real obstacle is a fundamental lack of trust—both in ourselves and in our partner.

Daring to Trust offers key insights and practical exercises for exploring and addressing our trust issues in relationships. Topics include:

   • How we learn early in life to trust others (or not to trust them)
   • Why we fear trusting
   • Developing greater trust in ourselves as the basis for trusting others
   • How to know if someone is trustworthy
   • Naïve trust vs. healthy, adult trust
   • What to do when trust is broken

Ultimately, Richo explains, we must develop trust in four directions: toward ourselves, toward others, toward life as it is, and toward a higher power or spiritual path. These four types of trust are not only the basis of healthy relationships, they are also the foundation of emotional well-being and freedom from fear.


"Combining profound insights and practical techniques, this important new book walks us step-by-step through our trust issues and, in so doing, opens the gate held shut by our deepest fears so that we can finally, fearlessly, love and be loved."—Susan Piver, author of The Wisdom of a Broken Heart

"Beautifully wise, straightforward, and helpful."—Jack Kornfield, author of The Wise Heart
