Title

The Moderating Role of Mindful Awareness in the Associations between Adverse Childhood Experiences, Coronavirus and Sleep

Presentation Type

Open Access Oral Presentation

Abstract

Although the associations between adverse childhood experiences (ACE) and sleep outcomes (Chapman et al., 2011) have been explored in prior research, few studies have examined the role of mindful awareness during the current pandemic on this link. Additionally, few studies have explored the impact of COVID-19 on sleep. In the current study, participants self-reported current sleep patterns, exposure to COVID-19, and mindful awareness and their past ACEs. Results of the study were partially consistent with past literature on ACE and sleep outcomes (Koskenvuo, Hublin, Partinen, Paunio, & Koskenvuo, 2010). The main effects between mindful awareness and sleep outcomes were also supported.
