Background: The literature is mixed as to the relationship between intelligence quotient (IQ) and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptomatology in adult populations. Even less is known about the relationship in children who have been traumatized.Methods: Fifty-nine children and adolescents (mean age = 10.6) with a history of interpersonal violence were evaluated with respect to PTSD symptomatology, number of traumas, and estimated Verbal, Performance and Full scale IQ scores.

Cognitive profiles of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder and depression in children and adolescents
TLDR
The findings suggests that PTSD and depressed children differ somewhat in their cognitive profiles, and the differences in IQ found between those with PTSD and those without are not necessarily a confounding variable, but may rather be a consequence of their traumatic experience. Expand
A mediation effect of trauma symptom from child physical abuse to lower intelligence
TLDR
Mediation analyses in structural equation modeling showed that child physical abuse influences traumatic symptoms, which in turn influence their IQ, namely as the full mediation. Expand
The effects of trauma types, cumulative trauma, and PTSD on IQ in two highly traumatized adolescent groups
We investigated the relationship between trauma type, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and intelligence quotient (IQ) utilizing a development-based taxonomy of trauma in a sample of 390Expand
A meta-analysis of risk factors for post-traumatic stress disorder in children and adolescents.
TLDR
The meta-analysis estimated the population effect sizes of 25 potential risk factors for PTSD in children and adolescents aged 6-18 years and supports the cognitive model of PTSD as a way of understanding its development and guiding interventions to reduce symptoms. Expand
Neuropsychological Functioning in Children with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
TLDR
In an ethnically diverse sample of 62 children who witnessed intimate partner violence, children with PTSD exhibited slower and less effective learning, heightened sensitivity to interference, and impaired effect of rehearsal on memory acquisition on the California Verbal Learning Test – Children's Version, a word list learning task. Expand
An experience sampling study of PTSD and alcohol-related problems.
TLDR
The association between PTSD symptoms and alcohol consumption is consistent with a self-medication model, however, the significant associations between PTSD Symptoms and alcohol problems, after controlling for use level, suggest a broader role of dysregulation. Expand
Neuropsychological Effects of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder in Children and Adolescents
Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can affect people of all ages but the literature is lacking on children and adolescents who experience PTSD. The consequences of this disorder extend beyond theExpand
Posttraumatic symptoms among maltreated youth using classification and regression tree analysis.
TLDR
Clinical protocols for this population could be recalibrated to be more sensitive to specific profiles that more accurately identify highest risk maltreated youth and better inform evidence-based treatment practices. Expand
PTSD, cyberbullying and peer violence: prevalence and correlates among adolescent emergency department patients.
TLDR
Among adolescents presenting to the ED for any reason, symptoms consistent with PTSD, depressive symptoms, physical peer violence, cyberbullying and community violence exposure are common and interrelated. Expand

Neuropsychological function in children with maltreatment-related posttraumatic stress disorder.
TLDR
Although based on a small number of subjects, these results support cognitive differences between children with and without maltreatment-related PTSD. Expand
Memory Functioning in Adult Women Traumatized by Childhood Sexual Abuse
TLDR
No evidence was found of explicit memory impairment in the abuse survivors and neither PTSD severity, dissociative symptom severity, nor extent of preexisting amnesia for childhood trauma contributed to the variance in memory functioning. Expand
Association of intelligence with severity of posttraumatic stress disorder symptoms in Vietnam Combat veterans.
TLDR
Cognitive variables may affect the ability to cope with trauma, thereby affecting whether a person develops chronic PTSD, and estimated full-scale IQ significantly predicted variance in PTSD symptoms beyond that predicted by extent of combat exposure. Expand

TLDR
Patients with PTSD may have deficits in short-term memory and Counseling and rehabilitation that address these deficits may be of value for PTSD patients. Expand
Memory, attention, function, and mood among patients with chronic posttraumatic stress disorder.
TLDR
The findings are consistent with reports that chronic PTSD is associated with compromised memory, attention, and function and the feasibility of using self-administrated touchscreen computer programs to evaluate and track features of mental disorders. Expand

TLDR
The findings suggest that childhood physical and sexual abuse is associated with long-term deficits in verbal short-term memory, similar to the pattern of deficits that have been found in patients with combat-related PTSD. Expand
