The Science of Trust

A research-based exploration of the dynamics in everyday interactions that either build or erode trust



by John Gottman, Ph.D.

In this new work, Dr. Gottman presents his newest findings on trust, trustworthiness and betrayal in a breakthrough approach to understanding and helping couples.  Based upon empirical data from five studies across the life course, Gottman reveals the dynamics in everyday couples’ interactions that either build or erode trust.  And there are surprising results.  For example, the relationship process that dissolves trust has nothing to do with the process that finally ends in betrayal—they are two separate processes.  Most important, Gottman shows clinicians how to block the avalanche towards betrayal by teaching clients the fine art of emotional attunement, and if trust has already fallen prey to poor relationship skills or betrayal, how to reconstitute trust and renew commitment.
