Only delusions and hallucinations meeting the highly probable criterion were included in the study.

Three scales were designed for use by the raters. Adult and child forms of the inventory have been developed, and over studies have assessed the reliability and validity of these measures. These are lower than the scores reported for the general population of For delusions, the mean comfort conetnu was 2. Testretest reliability of the SRS is significant beyond the 0. The PSE includes criteria for highly probable and less probable ratings. If the content of delusions and hallucinations reflects an individuals self-esteem, lower self-esteem would promote less favourable content while higher self-esteem would be reflected by more positive content.

The 6-point scale ranged from very negative to very positive. The mean comfort level and enhancement effect for hallucinations were somewhat lower at 2.

Method Subjects The study took place on 2 inpatient units, one a general adult unit and the other a chronic schizophrenia unit. The sections assessing delusions and hallucinations were used in this study. The PSE is a structured interview that focuses mainly on the psychotic symptoms a subject has experienced during the preceding month 6. Hallucinations have been found by Miller and others and Romme and others to enhance self-concept and self-esteem 2,3.


Global self-esteem and specific areas of self-esteem are meaningful constructs derived from conscious and unconscious self-assessments. Seven patients refused to take part in the study for reasons that suggested a fear of manipulation or persecution.

Each subject was cpntenu a number, which was used by the raters when they were completing the ratings. Organic delusional disorder was diagnosed in 2 subjects, drug-induced psychosis in 1 subject, and delusional disorder in 1 subject. Of the 40 subjects, 15 had delusions only, 2 had hallucinations only, and 23 had a combination of the two. The mean enhancement effect was 2.

Kokenes confirmed the construct validity of the subscales as measuring sources of self-esteem 9, This was a forced choice with no neutral 0 rating provided. The delusions and hallucinations of 40 psychotic patients were assessed by 2 independent raters for content indicative of positive or negative self-esteem and for the extent to which the delusional content would be self-enhancing or diminishing and comforting or discomforting to the subject.

The raters completed their assessments independently. The other measured the enhancingdiminishing effects of each delusion or hallucination, such as the degree to which each made them feel better or worse about themselves.

This pattern indicates that these 6 areas of self-esteem are partially independent but also share varying amounts of overlap. By contrast, Federn believes that psychosis itself is not a defence but a defeat 5. The most frequent were delusions of reference [37], persecution [29], grandiose delusions [23], and delusions of control [16].


Can J Psychiatry ; Forty-seven successive admissions were recruited who met inclusion criteria for the study, such as having experienced active psychosis within the past month. Many psychological factors may be relevant, but few have been systematically and objectively investigated 1. Kaney and Bentall suggest that delusions of persecution maintain self-esteem by attributing blame for negative events to other people or circumstances 4.

This study demonstrates that 2 specific personality factors, global self-esteem and self-regard, are reflected in the content of delusions and influence whether those delusions are experienced as comfortable or uncomfortable and enhancing or diminishing. Post on Nov 15 views.

Instruments The following scales were used in the study: The lowest shared variance is for school and work abilities and physical appearance 0. Auditory hallucinations were most frequent [30], followed by visual [19], tactile [4], olfactory [3], and gustatory [2] hallucinations. copoersmith

The remainder of the scales were designed for the present study. The SEI sek global self-esteem 7. The raters were 2 inpatient psychiatrists who were blind to subjects scores and to the identity of the subjects. Higher self-esteem would not need to be defended against and would likely result in more varied content.
