In this book, Richo explores the importance of trust throughout our emotional lives: how it develops in childhood and how it becomes an essential ingredient in healthy adult relationships. He emphasizes that developing trust in others begins by developing true trust in ourselves--in our feelings, our body, and in our inner voice--and he offers practical exercises for exploring and enhancing our sense of trust.
