Childhood sexual and physical abuse: age at exposure modulates impact on functional outcome in early psychosis patients

CONCLUSION:

Our results suggest a link between exposure to sexual and/or physical abuse and the later impairment of social functioning before the onset of the disease. Early Psychosis patients exposed to sexual and/or physical abuse before age 12 may present long-lasting functional impairment, while patients exposed at a later age may improve in this regard and have a better functional outcome.
