Objectives:  Participants will:
1.  Learn the common active ingredients of effective therapy and education that result in good outcomes,
2.  Understand the development of epistemic trust and social learning,
3.  Identify the activities and attitudes that promote epistemic trust and lead to good outcomes in therapy and supervision.

 Program Description:
This presentation aims to spell out the “active ingredients” associated with good outcomes and effectiveness in both psychotherapy and education. At the heart of the mechanisms of change is epistemic trust, a process rooted in human evolution that is acquired in early development to signal when, how much and whom to trust and learn from. In this presentation we will review the activities and attitudes (the “how to be?”) of therapists and educators/supervisors that promote epistemic trust and effective learning.
