Childhood trauma’s long term effects

A new study in the journal Schizophrenia Bulletin, reported in PsychCentral , has found a 50% likelihood of children with traumatic childhoods developing schizophrenia later in life.  As well, the authors found that different types of childhood trauma were associated with different types of mental disorders and psychoses in adulthood.  Looking at neurological and genetic factors and outcomes will hopefully identify protective factors for those who do not develop mental disorders post childhood trauma.
