© 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. We examined whether insecure attachment styles mediate the association between childhood trauma and nonclinical psychotic phenomena in 546 young adults.

Results support theoretical accounts implicating attachment disruptions in the pathway from childhood adversity to psychosis.
