CONCLUSION: In veterans with chronic pain, PTSD symptomology has a large effect for many negative health-related outcomes. This review supports the need for clinicians to screen and understand the effects of PTSD symptoms on patients with pain. Clinicians should recognize that veterans with PTSD and pain likely have elevated pain catastrophizing beliefs and decreased self-efficacy that should be targeted for intervention.

To the Editor Bethell et al find a dose-response association between positive childhood experiences (PCEs) and depression/poor mental health (D/PMH) and adult-reported social/emotional support after accounting for exposure to adverse childhood experiences. In nonrandomized (real-world) data, treatment selection can be biased by unobservable confounders or inadequately measured explanatory variables, including, in this case, drug use additional to alcohol, exercise, income, wealth, education, race/ethnicity, comorbidities, family and friends, community engagement, job stress, sleep, and major life events. In this case, PCEs...

n D Abstract In the current global home confinement situation due to the COVID-19 outbreak, most individuals are exposed to an unprecedented stressful situation of unknown duration.

Importantly, because of the fundamental role that sleep plays in emotion regulation, sleep disturbance can have direct consequences upon next day emotional functioning. In this paper we summarize what is known about the stress-sleep link and confinement as well as effective insomnia treatment. We discuss those effects of the current home co...
