chapter  9
Personal links between traumatic experiences and distorted emotions in those who hear voices: Marius Romme
Pages 15

In Chapter 7 Warren Larkin and John Read reported on the epidemiological evidence of the relationship between trauma and psychosis and within that research they also discussed the evidence of a causal relationship of trauma to hearing voices. In this chapter I will discuss the voice hearer's links between:

1 trauma and the development of psychosis; 2 trauma, the emotions involved and the characteristics of the voices

heard; 3 trauma and emotional reaction patterns.
