Abstract

The goal of this current study was to examine if abuse (emotional, physical, and sexual) would be a moderating variable in the links between sleep and anxiety levels. The sample included 425 participants form the Midlife in the United States (MIDUS II) biomaker study. The results showed that abuse did moderate the relationship, showing that abuse is linked to a higher chance that sleep problems will be associated with higher levels of anxiety.
