The Sci-Files – 08/07/2022 – Sam Barans – Trauma Affecting Psychosis

Chelsie Boodoo and Daniel Puentes

On this week’s The Sci-Files, your hosts Chelsie and Danny interview Sam Barans. Sam researches patient histories of trauma in populations at Clinical High Risk for psychosis at the University of New Mexico. With estimates of trauma exposure ranging from 54 to 97% in this population, it’s important to identify trauma risk factors and focus treatment on patients’ history of trauma. Sam’s research aims to identify discrepancies between patient self-reports of trauma and clinician reports of Adverse Childhood Experiences.
