What makes us trust people? How is trust developed and maintained? Is Western society facing a crisis of trust?

The Psychology of Trust addresses trust issues that are directly relevant to peoplesí experiences in their daily lives. It identifies the factors that cause people to trust, and the consequences of trust for real world issues in health, politics, terrorism, the workplace, and religious faith. It also explores the impact of a lack of trust, and what causes distrust of individuals, groups and organisations.

In a world where trust impacts our daily lives, The Psychology of Trust shows the role trust plays in our relationships, and provides practical guidance regarding our own trust in others.

About the Series

The Psychology of Everything

People are fascinated by psychology, and what makes humans tick. Why do we think and behave the way we do? We've all met armchair psychologists claiming to have the answers, and people that ask if psychologists can tell what they're thinking. The Psychology of Everything is a series of books which debunk the popular myths and pseudo-science surrounding some of life's biggest questions.

The series explores the hidden psychological factors that drive us, from our subconscious desires and aversions, to our natural social instincts. Absorbing, informative, and always intriguing, each book is written by an expert in the field, examining how research-based knowledge compares with popular wisdom, and showing how psychology can truly enrich our understanding of modern life.

Applying a psychological lens to an array of topics and contemporary concerns - from sex, to fashion, to conspiracy theories - The Psychology of Everything will make you look at everything in a new way.
