Abstract

Psychotic illness is associated in the literature with abuse in childhood (Read, van Os, Morrison, & Ross, 2005). This literature is reviewed, focussing on the relationship between childhood abuse and delusions. The review looks to the abuse literature to suggest ways that psychological sequelae of abuse might fit with existing theories of delusions to offer a more comprehensive understanding of their origins. It is argued that current psychological models of delusions do not deal adequately with the impact of childhood abuse. A greater appreciation of this relationship is theoretically important, but also has crucial implications for the accuracy of formulations and the appropriateness of treatment.
