About the Authors
  • Since the beginnings of psychology as a discipline, interpersonal trust has been regarded as a crucial aspect of human functioning. Basic levels of interpersonal trust amongst people were believed to be necessary for the survival of society and the development of successful psychosocial functioning. Some research has shown that interpersonal trust is linked to physical health, cognitive functioning, and social functioning (including close relationships) across development. This book presents the current research in the growing field of interpersonal trust during childhood and adolescence (up to the onset of adulthood). It deals with the extent to which children and adolescents demonstrate the multiple facets of trust and trustworthiness, and how these multiple facets affect their social relationships with a wide range of social contacts: parents, peers, and social groups. It will be of interest to developmental, social, educational and clinical psychologists.

    • The first academic book to address the topic of interpersonal trust during childhood and adolescence
    • Reviews past research to provide a background for the reader, and features the most up-to-date research on the topic
    • Includes newly developed scales that permit future research

    Reviews & endorsements

    "A collection of wide-ranging and impressive scholarship on a subject matter that has been shamefully neglected by most psychologists. In fourteen lucid chapters, readers are challenged to consider what it means for children and adolescents to trust someone and to be trusted in return, and why some individuals are more trusting and trustworthy than others. Even scholars working in areas somewhat removed from the study of children’s developing relationships will find something to contemplate and connections to their own work. Trust me."
    --Jeffrey G. Parker, Department of Psychology & Institute for Social Science Research, University of Alabama

    "Interpersonal trust is an important topic which has been unjustly neglected. This book plays a significant role in redressing the balance. Taking a developmental perspective through childhood and adolescence, and bringing in disciplines such as behaviour genetics and neurobiology, this excellently organised and comprehensive volume is an invaluable resource."
    --Peter K. Smith, Goldsmiths, University of London

    "....the only present title that addresses the development of interpersonal trust from infancy through adolescence.... Recommended...."
    -- J. Mercer, emerita, Richard Stockton College, CHOICE
