Abstract

This review aims to explore evidence linking trauma and its psychological consequences to psychosis. In the first section, trauma is defined and common psychological consequences to trauma (intrusions, posttraumatic stress disorder and dissociation) are discussed. The second section focuses on schizophrenia, psychosis and schizotypy, before reviewing evidence for a link between the experience of trauma and the development and maintenance of serious mental illness. The third section outlines several explanations for the evidence reviewed in section two, before proposing some future directions for research.
