Section 3F: How to build trust in your kinship peer support group
Trust is the foundation for a kinship peer support group. It allows everyone to relax into a space surrounded by others who truly understand.
What is trust?
Trust is when you feel you can place confidence and belief in others and rely on them to respect that. That might be keeping information private or showing respect to others.
If there is trust within a group, it means that every member of the group feels they can share openly and honestly and know that they will not be judged. Their comments will not be discussed outside of the group. It’s a confidential space.
Trust also develops in group when everyone feels they can be themselves and their rights are respected. People don’t have to agree on everything, but they do respect everyone in group in line with the Group Agreement.
