Useful concept or professional blind spot?
This page is not available in English. Below is the Norwegian page translated by Google.
Peter Fonagy has been the principal architect for the concept of "epistemic trust" which has gained widespread use in developmental psychology and psychotherapy literature in recent years. The point of departure for this meeting is that the concept has been embraced without significant critical discussion.
The meeting will be structured in a pro-contra way. First, psychologist Mickey Kongerslev, who heads the Danish Center for Excellence on Personality Disorders, will justify his support for the concept of epistemic trust. Then Sigmund Karterud, professor of psychiatry, will make his critical remarks and explain why epistemic trust should be viewed as an obscure term, a possible professional blind spot.
The submissions are followed by a general debate.
