Child trauma exposure and psychopathology


Enhanced threat processing is a mechanism linking child trauma to psychopathology.

Information processing biases and altered emotional learning are key mechanisms.

Heightened emotional reactivity and poor emotion regulation are additional pathways.

Supportive relationships with caregivers may reduce threat processing.

Sensitivity to reward and mature amygdala-prefrontal circuitry are also protective.
