Background: Developing a better psychological understanding of unusual experiences (UEs) in a child and adolescent population has become an important area of research. Presently, much of our understanding of UEs has derived from psychological models of psychosis in adults. There is now a robust evidence-base supporting the relationship between childhood adversity (CA) and psychosis in adulthood, and researchers have begun to study the psychological processes involved in this relationship. Importantly, associated psychological processes appear to differ according to the type of experience, suggesting targeted approaches for therapy development. Research is needed to test these associations, and the potential applicability of theory and therapies, in children and young people.
