Understanding links among childhood trauma, dissociation, and women's mental health



Understanding links among childhood trauma, dissociation, and women's mental health



American Journal of Orthopsychiatry 71(3): 311-321



Interrelationships among pathological dissociation, child and adult trauma exposure, and adult mental health symptoms were examined in a sample of low-income, mostly African-American women. Dissociation was significantly related to both trauma exposure and mental health symptoms but did not mediate this relationship. Implications for research and practice are discussed.
