    Problems in mentalizing are crucially an understanding of personality disorder but this is not the whole story. In many patients relatively good mentalizing may be associated with persistent disorders, how can we understand the paradox mentalizing problems appear to be necessary even if they are a sufficient condition for enduring mental health problems. We propose a framework based on developmental models of social learning interpersonal knowledge transmission necessary entails trust in information provided by another individual. The capability to develop trust may depend on mentalizing or the mentalizing may not be sufficient to ensure that this trust is available. The presentation will review the way mentalizing links and can enhance epistemic trust (trust in knowledge) and how psychological therapy enhances an individual’s capacity to learn and adapt to a range of social contexts.

    At the conclusion of this live presentation, participants should be able to:

    • Describe the relationship between epistemic trust and mentalizing.
    • Articulate how failures of epistemic trust and epistemic hypervigilance may explain the challenges faced by individuals who respond poorly to psychological therapy.
    • Be ready to practice techniques that may enhance a sense of epistemic trust and reduce inappropriate epistemic vigilance.
