Trustworthy Connections: Interpersonal Issues in Spiritual Direction by Anne Winchell Silver

Although God is at the center of the process of spiritual direction, the more readily visible participants are human beings. Like all other people, directors and directees are subject to relationship dynamics. Trustworthy Connections identifies some issues and challenges that can arise in spiritual direction relationships and offers resources for further consideration and reflection. The topics and examples are focused on traditional one–to–one, face–to–face spiritual direction, although some are also relevant to group direction and direction by correspondence. Trustworthy Connections is designed for use as a reference and a springboard for discussion for spiritual directors and anyone else who is interested in spiritual direction. Like the process of spiritual direction itself, this book is about asking questions, discussing ideas, and suggesting alternatives rather than giving advice or getting answers.

Many people who think they would like a Spiritual Director have no idea what to expect. This book is sound, grounded & well researched. The author is a practicing Spiritual Director who knows full well that it is the Holy Spirit who does the directing. She accompanies directees as they listen and look for God's direction

This is a wonderful book. Complex, difficult, and very important concepts are expressed clearly and simply. Although it is written specifically for spiritual directors, it would be useful reading for anyone who works in intimate interaction with people.
