   Abstract = {Although it is well established that neuroticism increases
             the risk of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), little is
             known about the mechanisms that promote PTSD in individuals
             with elevated levels of neuroticism. Across two studies, we
             examined the cognitive-affective processes through which
             neuroticism leads to greater PTSD symptom
             severity.Community-dwelling adults with trauma histories
             varying widely in severity (Study 1) and clinically
             diagnosed individuals exposed to DSM-IV-TR A1 criterion
             traumas (Study 2) completed measures of neuroticism,
             negative affectivity, trauma memory characteristics, and
             PTSD symptom severity.Longitudinal data in Study 1 showed
             that individuals with higher scores on two measures of
             neuroticism assessed approximately three decades apart in
             young adulthood and midlife reported trauma memories
             accompanied by more intense physiological reactions, more
             frequent involuntary rehearsal, and greater perceived
             centrality to identity in older adulthood. These properties
             of trauma memories were in turn associated with more severe
             PTSD symptoms. Study 2 replicated these findings using
             cross-sectional data from individuals with severe trauma
             histories and three additional measures of
             neuroticism.Results suggest that neuroticism leads to PTSD
             symptoms by magnifying the emotionality, availability, and
             centrality of trauma memories as proposed in mnemonic models
             of PTSD.},

   Abstract = {The present study examined the specificity of
             autobiographical memory in adolescents and adults with
             versus without child sexual abuse (CSA) histories.
             Eighty-five participants, approximately half of whom per age
             group had experienced CSA, were tested on the
             autobiographical memory interview. Individual difference
             measures, including those for trauma-related
             psychopathology, were also administered. Findings revealed
             developmental differences in the relation between
             autobiographical memory specificity and CSA. Even with
             depression statistically controlled, reduced memory
             specificity in CSA victims relative to controls was observed
             among adolescents but not among adults. A higher number of
             posttraumatic stress disorder criteria met predicted more
             specific childhood memories in participants who reported CSA
             as their most traumatic life event. These findings
             contribute to the scientific understanding of childhood
             trauma and autobiographical memory functioning and
             underscore the importance of considering the role of age and
             degree of traumatization within the study of
             autobiographical memory.},
