Not a one-way street: Commentary on… Does Childhood Trauma Play a Role in the Aetiology of Psychosis?

  • Eric J. Davies
Summary

Coughlan & Cannon have provided an extremely useful review, highlighting the evidence for the association between childhood trauma and psychosis. This is relevant to those working with individuals with psychosis across all age ranges. This commentary discusses further some of the points raised, the complexity of the association and developmental aspects.
