ObjectiveNumerous studies of both clinical and large-scale population based samples have demonstrated that adverse childhood events are risk factors for subsequent psychosis. This study assessed the relationships between adverse childhood events and auditory and visual hallucinatory experiences.MethodThe study analysed data from the National Comorbidity Survey Replication conducted in the US that assessed (all before age 16) rape, sexual assault and physical assault. Psychosis symptomatology… Expand

TLDR
It is suggested that more research attention be paid to the etiology and impact of nonauditory hallucinations in psychosis samples and that observed associations between auditory hallucinations and dissociation in psychosis may extend to other hallucination modalities. Expand
Modelling the emergence of hallucinations: early acquired vulnerabilities, proximal life stressors and maladaptive psychological processes
TLDR
The study’s findings highlighted how vulnerability to hallucinations can occur developmentally across time, with early acquired vulnerability factors, combining additively with more proximal day-to-day factors and cognitive style, to propel a person further towards the formation of hallucinations. Expand
Prevalence of auditory verbal hallucinations in a general population: A group comparison study
TLDR
The prevalence of AVH was found to be relatively high, and the results revealed higher levels of reduced mental health for individuals who sought professional help, followed by those who did not, compared with those who had never experienced AVH. Expand
Childhood sexual trauma, cannabis use and psychosis: statistically controlling for pre-trauma psychosis and psychopathology
TLDR
The current findings offer further justification for the inclusion of childhood sexual trauma in analyses investigating associations between cannabis use and psychosis, using data from the National Comorbidity Survey-Replication. Expand
Visual Hallucinations in First-Episode Psychosis: Association with Childhood Trauma
TLDR
Visual hallucinations are common in first-episode psychosis, and are related to childhood interpersonal trauma. Expand
Associations between specific psychotic symptoms and specific childhood adversities are mediated by attachment styles: An analysis of the National Comorbidity Survey
TLDR
The findings highlight the importance of addressing and understanding childhood experiences within the context of current attachment styles in clinical interventions for patients with psychosis. Expand
A comprehensive review of auditory verbal hallucinations: lifetime prevalence, correlates and mechanisms in healthy and clinical individuals
TLDR
This review will examine the presentation of auditory hallucinations across the life span, as well as in various clinical groups, including childhood, adolescence, adult non-clinical populations, hypnagogic/hypnopompic experiences, high schizotypal traits, schizophrenia, substance induced AVH, AVH in epilepsy, and AVh in the elderly.

Childhood Adversities Increase the Risk of Psychosis: A Meta-analysis of Patient-Control, Prospective- and Cross-sectional Cohort Studies
TLDR
It is shown that childhood adversity is strongly associated with increased risk for psychosis and population attributable risk was 33% (16%–47%). Expand
Childhood trauma and psychosis - what is the evidence?
TLDR
Initial studies suggest that trauma-specific treatments are as beneficial for these patients as for other diagnostic groups, as well as biological mechanisms such as dysregulated cortisol and increased sensitivity to stress. Expand

Childhood traumas and hallucinations: an analysis of the National Comorbidity Survey.
TLDR

Occurrence of hallucinatory experiences in a community sample and ethnic variations
TLDR
The results provide an estimate of the annual prevalence of hallucinations in the general population and the variation across ethnic groups suggests cultural differences in these experiences. Expand
Association between trauma exposure and delusional experiences in a large community-based sample
TLDR
Exposure to any traumatic event but without the development of PTSD was associated with increased endorsement of delusional experiences and the association between PTSD and delusional experiences remained significant after adjusting for factors associated with psychotic symptoms. Expand
Prevalence and correlates of self-reported psychotic symptoms in the British population
TLDR
Self-reported psychotic symptoms are less common in this study than reported elsewhere, because of the measure used, but these symptoms have demographic and clinical correlates similar to clinical psychosis. Expand

TLDR
Exposure to psychological trauma may increase the risk of psychotic symptoms in people vulnerable to psychosis. Expand
Pretreatment and outcome correlates of sexual and physical trauma in an epidemiological cohort of first-episode psychosis patients.
TLDR
SPA prevalence is high in FEP patients and must be explored by clinicians considering its durable impact on psychological balance and link with long-lasting suicidal risk, as well as to develop psychological interventions adapted to this very sensitive and complex issue. Expand
Gender differences in the association between childhood abuse and psychosis.
TLDR
Reports of severe childhood physical or sexual abuse were associated with psychosis in women but not in men, and the effect of physical abuse in women was stronger and more robust than that for sexual abuse. Expand
Reliability and comparability of psychosis patients' retrospective reports of childhood abuse.
TLDR
The reliability and comparability of first-presentation psychosis patients' reports of childhood abuse are explored and justification for the use in future studies of retrospective reports of Childhood abuse obtained from individuals with psychotic disorders is provided. Expand

Psychosis, victimisation and childhood disadvantage
TLDR
In people with psychosis, there is a marked excess of victimising experiences, many of which will have occurred during childhood, which is suggestive of a social contribution to aetiology. Expand
