Deconstructing pathways to resilience: A systematic review of associations between psychosocial mechanisms and transdiagnostic adult mental health outcomes in the context of adverse childhood experiences

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTAdverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are identified with increased risk of adult mental health difficulties and negative impacts on well-being. However, there is a need to go beyond simple associations and identify candidate mechanisms underpinning the ACEs-mental health relationship.

Clin Psychol Psychother. 2022 Feb 25. doi: 10.1002/cpp.2731. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTNegative symptoms have an adverse impact on quality of life and functioning in psychosis. Service users with psychosis have identified negative symptoms as a priority for their recovery. Despite this, there is a lack of effective and targeted psychological interventions for negative symptoms and their underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood. Childhood trauma is a robust risk factor for positive symptoms in psychosis, but the association with negative symptoms is less well established. Our aim was to examine the association bet...
