33 adolescents were tested for signs of dissociation and somatization as these processes relate to histories of physical and sexual abuse, a characteristic of over half of patients admitted for acute psychiatric disorder. Analysis suggested that the 19 adolescents having histories of abuse were more likely to score higher on dissociation and somatization.
