During our lives we are all exposed to unpleasant events, but what is it that leads one person to perceive such an event as ‘traumatic’ and have a major adverse reaction to it and another person to dismiss it as inconsequential and be seemingly unaffected by it? This talk will utilise evidence from a range of longitudinal cohort studies to explore the multi-level influences on perceptions of events as traumatic, the moderators and mediators of the development of mental health problems (particularly psychosis) following exposure to childhood trauma, and the factors which appear to protect trauma-exposed children from later adverse outcomes.
