Abstract

This study explores how trusting relationships between PhD students and their significant others contribute to the success of academic development programs and how these programs affect trust in significant others. It introduces the definition of trust and distrust in academic development as synthesized from trust research in other disciplines. The study finds that lack of trust hinders conversations in general and about certain topics in particular. Academic development programs can improve participants’ trustworthiness by making them expert conversation partners; but they may also diminish participants’ trust in significant others if PhD student’s new role conception differs from their significant other’s.
