The paper calls for research on 'trusting' as a process instead of 'trust' as an outcome. It highlights mental and social processes of trusting and outlines five process views of trusting as (1) continuing, (2) processing, (3) learning, (4) becoming, and (5) constituting. Methodological implications of these process views are discussed as well as new possibilities for making sense of crises.
