Schizoaffective disorder, dh episode and major depressive episode with psychotic features were each diagnosed in 5 subjects. Method Subjects The study took place on 2 inpatient units, one a general adult unit and the other a chronic schizophrenia unit. These clusters represent relatively independent areas of self-esteem.

Alternatively, if the content of delusions and hallucinations defends self-esteem, lower self-esteem would produce more favourable, self-enhancing content. Can J Psychiatry ; Kaney and Bentall suggest that delusions of persecution maintain self-esteem by attributing blame for negative events to other people or circumstances 4.

Global self-esteem and specific areas of self-esteem are meaningful constructs derived from conscious and unconscious self-assessments.

Thus self-esteem is one intrapsychic factor that may be considered likely to influence the content of delusions and hallucinations. Only delusions and hallucinations meeting the highly probable criterion were included df the study.


Following the structured interview, subjects completed the SEI and SRS, and this ended their participation in the study.

Delusional content is therefore consistent with patients views of themselves, and this may partially account for the persistence of delusions. 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. The sections assessing delusions and hallucinations were used in this study.

Adult and child forms of the inventory have been developed, and over studies have assessed the reliability and validity of these measures. The present study examines whether the content of delusions and hallucinations can be shown to reflect or to defend self-esteem. The raters completed their assessments independently.

Auditory hallucinations were most frequent [30], followed by visual [19], tactile [4], olfactory [3], and gustatory [2] hallucinations. Forty subjects gave informed consent and completed the study within 2 weeks. These are lower than the scores reported for the general population of The most frequent were delusions of reference [37], persecution [29], grandiose delusions [23], and delusions of control [16]. The literature supports both alternatives.

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.

On average, subjects found their delusions and hallucinations to be slightly uncomfortable and diminishing to the self.

The raters coopermith 2 inpatient psychiatrists who were blind to subjects scores and to the identity of the subjects. The content of delusions reflects both global self-esteem and self-regard.


The PSE includes criteria for highly probable and less probable ratings. This increased the probability that overvalued ideas and illusions were excluded. Higher self-esteem would not need to be defended against and would likely result in more varied content.

The adult SEI form used in this study contains 25 items. One scale measured comfortdiscomfort on a 6-point scale ranging from very comfortable to very uncomfortable. The mean comfort level and enhancement effect for hallucinations were somewhat lower at 2. Three scales were designed for use by the raters.

This pattern indicates that these 6 areas of self-esteem are partially independent but also share varying amounts of overlap. Two of cooperxmith scales rated subjects reactions to each delusion or hallucination they experienced. This was a forced choice with no neutral 0 rating provided. These ratings were correlated with the results of self-esteem inventories completed by the subjects.
