Childhood parasomnias increase risk for psychotic experiences in early adulthood

May 28, 2015

Persistent childhood nightmares and night terrors were associated with increased risk for psychotic experiences at age 18 years, according to study findings in The British Journal of Psychiatry.

“Although recent research has suggested that the relationship between established risk factors for schizophrenia and psychotic experiences may be weaker than initially thought, the relevance of these subclinical experiences to early intervention strategies in psychosis remains important,” study researcher Andrew Thompson, MD, FRCPsych, of the University of Warwick, Coventry, United Kingdom, and colleagues wrote. “One such potential risk factor in children that can be readily identified by parents, children and professionals is disturbance of sleep.”
