In 2009 found that a combination of childhood abuse and parental divorce significantly increased the likelihood of a diagnosis of lifetime PTSD in adulthood [24]. Binelli et al. in 2012 found only one significant positive correlation between family violence and SAD, although the assessment of childhood trauma was based on five closed questions (yes/ no) relating to five childhood adversities, namely, the loss of someone close, emotional abuse, physical abuse, family violence, and sexual abuse [25].

4 ETHICAL CONSIDERATIONS The protocol received ethical clearance from the Health Research Ethics Committee at Stellenbosch University, South Africa. The study was conducted according to internationally and locally accepted ethical guidelines, namely, the Declaration of Helsinki and the South African Department of Health's 2004 Guidelines: Ethics in Health Research Structures and Processes. Participation was completely voluntary, and written informed consent was obtained from all participants. 5 STATISTICAL ANALYSIS A one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was conducted to assess group differences of childhood trauma as measured by the ETI.

The frequency and intensity of PTSD symptoms (as described by the DSM-IV diagnostic criteria) are measured by CAPS on a separate 5-point Likert scales, each ranging from 0 to 4. These ratings are then summarized into a 9-point severity score for each symptom, ranging from 0–8 [32]. The CTQ and ETI were used to assess EDT and to differentiate the low/ no and moderate/severe EDT groups with SAD. A score of less than 40 on the CTQ indicated low/no trauma, a score between 40 and 46 was used as a threshold for exclusion, and a score of more than 46 indicated moderate/ severe EDT [1].
