Exposure to traumatic childhood experiences leads to multiple dimensions of poor sleep in adulthood

Takeaway

  • There is a strong association between traumatic childhood experiences (TCEs) and poor sleep in adulthood, especially with increased social proximity between perpetrator and victim.

Why this matters

  • Increased social proximity between perpetrator and victim may lead to increased multiple dimensions of poor sleep in adult women and this understanding may allow interventions to improve sleep and prevent more chronic sleep-related issues arising.
