Duygu Ece Simsek, Alper Evrensel


The effect of childhood traumas in adulthood psychopathology is considerable. There are studies indicating that there is cause and effect relation between adulthood aggression and childhood traumas. However, in Turkey, there are few studies on this subject. The results of these studies are controversial in some aspects. This research was designed to look into the relation between aggression level and childhood traumas in Turkish society. Childhood Trauma Questionnaire and Buss Perry Aggression Questionnaire were applied to 50 healthy individuals who were chosen randomly in Beylikdüzü district of İstanbul province and who did not get any neuropsychiatric diagnosis. The childhood trauma levels of the participants were detected as significantly high but their aggression levels were detected as normal. A positive meaningful correlation was detected between the Childhood Trauma Questionnaire scores and Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire scores. These results are supporting the idea that childhood trauma may be among the predisposing factors of adulthood aggression.
