Trust psychology deals with issues related to trust and experiences in everyday life. The book identifies the factors that lead people to trust others and the consequences of this decision on real health, political, terrorist, workplace or religious beliefs issues around the world. The book also explores the impact of mistrust, as well as the causes of its manifestation in individuals, groups or organizations.
