Abstract
In purpose of gaining insight into subjective experiences of the self in people with schizophrenia, four people, who have or have had schizophrenia and/or have experienced recurring psychotic episodes, were interviewed. The self was defined as the minimal self which has an immediate experiential reality, and schizophrenia as a self-disorder rather than presence and prevalence of psychotic symptoms. Semi-structured interviews were conducted and the transcripts were analyzed using IPA (Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis). The analysis resulted in four categories. Many of the described experiences could be seen as expressions of self-disorders, although accounts of psychotic symptoms such as hallucinations and delusions also emerged.... (More)

Regarding differentiation between schizophrenia and psychosis the results go in line with theories of schizophrenia as a self-disorder, among other things due to schizophrenia being described as a latent condition, in contrast to psychosis, which was referred to as episodic. The sense of agency, of having influence over what one thinks, feels and does, proved to be an important factor that could mediate the quality of psychosis. In many cases the onset of schizophrenia or a psychotic episode resulted in seeing oneself and the world in a different light. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
I syfte att få en bild av subjektiva upplevelser av självet hos personer med schizofreni intervjuades fyra personer som är eller har varit diagnostiserade med schizofreni och/eller har upplevt återkommande psykotiska episoder. Självet definierades utifrån the minimal self som innebär en omedelbar, upplevelsemässig realitet, och schizofreni som en störning i självet snarare än närvaro och utbredning av psykotiska symptom. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes och transkriptionerna analyserades genom IPA (Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis). Analysen mynnade ut i fyra kategorier. Många av

I syfte att få en bild av subjektiva upplevelser av självet hos personer med schizofreni intervjuades fyra personer som är eller har varit diagnostiserade med schizofreni och/eller har upplevt återkommande psykotiska episoder. Självet definierades utifrån the minimal self som innebär en omedelbar, upplevelsemässig realitet, och schizofreni som en störning i självet snarare än närvaro och utbredning av psykotiska symptom. Semistrukturerade intervjuer genomfördes och transkriptionerna analyserades genom IPA (Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis). Analysen mynnade ut i fyra kategorier. Många av
de beskrivna upplevelserna kunde ses som uttryck för störningar i självet, men redogörelser för psykotiska symptom såsom hallucinationer och vanföreställningar framkom också. Gällande differentiering mellan schizofreni och psykos gick resultatet i linje med teorier om schizofreni som en störning i självet, bland annat eftersom schizofreni beskrevs som ett latent tillstånd till skillnad från psykos, som talades om som något episodiskt. Känslan av agentskap, att ha inflytande över vad man tänker, känner och gör, visade sig vara en viktig faktor som kunde mediera psykosens kvalitet. I många fall ledde insjuknande i schizofreni eller en psykotisk episod till att man förändrade sin syn på både sig själv och världen. (Less)
