Trauma represents a persistent threat to health and wellbeing. Yet, little research has examined links between trauma, psychopathology, and resilience in the Middle East and North Africa region outside of refugee settings, especially in Egypt. Existing studies in Egypt rarely examine trauma exposure from a polyvictimization lens, assess multiple forms of trauma-related psychopathology, or focus on dimensional symptom assessment. The current study aimed to address these gaps by (a) reporting on the diverse range of trauma exposure types, including direct, witnessed, and indirect exposure in a trauma-exposed sample; and (b) examining the associations between trauma exposure, psychopathology, and resilience.
