Aim To study the course of experience of voices sequentially over a 3-year period in those with and those without a need for mental health care (patient status). Method In a group of 80 children of mean age 12.9 years (s.d.=3.1), of which around 50% were not receiving mental health care, baseline measurement of voice characteristics, voice attributions, psychopathology, stressful… Expand

Persistence and outcome of auditory hallucinations in adolescence: A longitudinal general population study of 1800 individuals
TLDR
Investigating to what degree hallucinations persist, and whether persistence of hallucinations increases the risk of developing secondary delusional ideation and affective dysregulation in adolescents found that hallucinations in adolescents are a common and mainly transitory phenomenon, the persistence rate over time is far from negligible, and associated with clinical deterioration.

A review of the current literature suggests that there is a considerable turnover of incident-discontinuing cases and that most cases discontinue in the short term, and that a subset of the cases was at risk for persistence or transition to psychosis. Expand
Predicting persistence of hallucinations from childhood to adolescence
TLDR
Support for the dynamic expression of childhood hallucinatory experiences is provided and increased neurodevelopmental vulnerability in youth with persistent hallucinatory experienced is suggested, confirming that persistent hallucinationsinatory experiences are a complex multifactorial trait.

Gender, psychopathology, and development: from puberty to early adulthood
TLDR

TLDR
Symptoms of psychosis and psychoticlike phenomena were systematically inquired for in 58 prepubertal children who fulfilled Research Diagnostic Criteria for major depressive disorder, and subjects were classical into endogenous and nonendogenous subtypes. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that subclinical auditory hallucinations may have an especially strong relation with dissociative processes, whereas subclinical delusions appeared to be most strongly correlated with schizotypal thought processes. Expand
