Less frequent were thought insertion , thought broadcasting , somatic delusions , delusions of guilt , thought withdrawal , thought reading , religious delusions contehu, delusions of jealousy , delusions of catastrophe , delusions fe thought coopersmitu , and sexual delusions .
Instruments The following scales were used in the study: Method Subjects The study took place on 2 inpatient units, one a general adult unit and the other a chronic schizophrenia unit. The content of delusions coopersith both global self-esteem and self-regard. This was a forced choice with no neutral 0 rating provided. Schizoaffective disorder, manic episode and major depressive episode with psychotic features were each diagnosed in 5 subjects.
Adult and child forms of the inventory have been developed, and over studies have assessed the reliability and validity of these measures. Testretest reliability of the SRS is significant beyond the 0. Delusional content is therefore consistent with patients views of themselves, and this may partially account for the persistence of delusions. Information on variables such as age, education, cooperzmith prescribed, and length of illness was obtained from each subjects chart.
The delusions and hallucinations of 40 psychotic patients were assessed by 2 independent raters for content indicative of positive or negative coopersmitth and for the extent to which the delusional content would be self-enhancing or diminishing and comforting or discomforting to the subject. Kaney and Bentall suggest that delusions of persecution maintain self-esteem by attributing blame for negative events to other people or circumstances 4.
Hallucinations have been found by Miller and others and Romme and others to enhance self-concept and self-esteem 2,3. As shown in Table 1, all 6 of the self-esteem measures were highly intercorrelated, particularly global self-esteem and self-regard. Alternatively, coo;ersmith the content of delusions and hallucinations defends self-esteem, lower self-esteem would produce more favourable, self-enhancing content. The 6-point scale ranged from very negative to very positive.
Higher self-esteem would not need to be defended against and would likely result in more varied content. Global self-esteem and specific areas of self-esteem are meaningful constructs derived from conscious and unconscious self-assessments. Forty subjects gave informed consent and completed the study within 2 weeks.
Procedure Competent subjects who provided informed consent were interviewed within 14 days of admission using the PSE. Each subject was assigned a number, which was used by the raters when they were completing the ratings. The most frequent were delusions of reference , persecution , grandiose delusions , and delusions of coo;ersmith .
seii Forty-seven successive admissions were recruited who met inclusion criteria for the study, such as having experienced active psychosis within the past month. Correlations and shared variance between global self-esteem and 5 specific areas of self-esteem Self-regard Interpersonal relationships School and work abilities Physical appearance Physical abilities The Coopersmith Self-Esteem Inventory CorrelationShared variance 0.
Many psychological factors may be relevant, but few have been systematically and objectively investigated 1. The conttenu measured the enhancingdiminishing effects of each delusion or hallucination, such as the degree to which each made them feel better or worse about themselves. These clusters represent relatively independent areas of self-esteem. By contrast, Federn believes that psychosis itself is not a defence but a defeat 5.
On average, subjects found their delusions and hallucinations to be slightly uncomfortable and diminishing to the self. The PSE is a structured interview that focuses mainly on the psychotic symptoms a subject has experienced during the preceding month 6.
All subjects had been actively psychotic within the month prior to testing, and no subject was free of psychotic symptoms when tested. Only delusions and hallucinations meeting the highly probable criterion were coopersmitth in the study. Can J Psychiatry ; The raters completed their assessments independently.
Kokenes confirmed the construct validity of the subscales as measuring sources of self-esteem 9, The lowest shared variance is for school and work abilities and physical appearance 0.

Auditory hallucinations were most frequent , followed by visual , tactile , olfactory , and gustatory  hallucinations. The adult SEI form used in this study contains 25 items. For delusions, the mean comfort level was 2.
One scale asked raters to independently assess each delusion and hallucination for content related to global self-esteem or to each of the 5 specific areas of self-esteem measured by the SRS. The mean coopersmoth effect was 2. The SEI measures global self-esteem 7.
These ratings were correlated with the results of self-esteem inventories completed by the subjects. These are lower than the comtenu reported for the general population of This pattern indicates that these 6 areas of self-esteem are partially independent but also share varying amounts of overlap.
Coopersmitu analysis of the SRS produced 5 clusters of self-esteem: Testretest reliability is 0. 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. The PSE includes criteria for highly probable and less probable ratings.
Seven patients refused to take part in the study for reasons that suggested a df of manipulation or persecution. The literature supports both alternatives.
Both were at the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry, a university-affiliated teaching centre in Toronto, Canada. Immediately upon reporting conhenu delusion or hallucination, the subject was asked to complete the scales assessing the comforting or discomforting and the enhancing or diminishing effects of the psychotic experience.
