Adults who experienced multiple incidents of childhood maltreatment were more than two times as likely to have trouble sleeping than their counterparts who were not maltreated during childhood, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Toronto, University of Ottawa, and Western University. The study appears online in the journal Sleep Medicine.
“We found a significant association between childhood maltreatment and difficulty sleeping later in life,” says lead author Philip Baiden, a PhD Student at the University of Toronto’s Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work.
