Abstract

Trauma Symptoms and Executive Functioning in Children: A Pilot Report on Depression and Anxiety as Mediators

Trauma symptoms have been linked to long-term defects in executive functioning in clinical samples of youth. Symptoms of depression and anxiety, which commonly co-occur with traumatic symptoms, may also play a role in executive functioning deficits. These associations have yet to be explored in healthy children, who may hold important clues for fostering resilience following trauma.
