  1. ED = participants that still fulfil the diagnostic criteria for Exhaustion Disorder at follow-up, i.e. the Exhaustion Disorder group (n = 51)
  2. EDrec = participants that no longer fulfil the diagnostic criteria for Exhaustion Disorder at follow-up, i.e. the recovered group (n = 99)
  3. For each adverse childhood experience, percentages in each group (ED and EDrec) were calculated as well as the differences in percentage points between the groups along with the 95% confidence intervals (CI) for the differences
