Organic delusional disorder was diagnosed in 2 subjects, drug-induced psychosis in 1 subject, and delusional disorder in 1 subject. 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. Forty subjects gave informed consent ve completed the study within 2 weeks. Hallucinations have been found by Miller and others and Coopersimth and others to enhance self-concept and self-esteem 2,3.

The delusions and hallucinations of 40 psychotic swi 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.

This was a forced choice with no neutral 0 rating provided.

Two of these scales rated subjects reactions to each delusion or hallucination they experienced. These are lower than the scores reported for the general population of Auditory hallucinations were most frequent [30], followed by visual [19], tactile [4], olfactory [3], and gustatory [2] hallucinations.


The literature supports both alternatives. To investigate the hypothesis that the content of delusions and hallucinations is significantly influenced by subjects global self-esteem and by 5 specific areas of self-esteem.

Of the 40 subjects, 15 had delusions only, 2 had hallucinations only, and 23 had a combination of the two. The mean comfort level and enhancement effect for hallucinations were dy lower at 2.

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. All subjects had been actively psychotic within the month prior to testing, and no subject was free of psychotic symptoms when tested.

Delusional content is therefore consistent with patients views of themselves, and this may partially account for the persistence of delusions. This increased the probability that overvalued ideas and illusions were excluded. The raters completed their assessments independently.

Less frequent were thought insertion [9], thought broadcasting [8], somatic delusions [7], delusions of guilt [7], thought withdrawal [7], thought reading [6], religious delusions [4], delusions of jealousy [2], delusions of catastrophe [2], delusions of thought control [1], and sexual delusions [1].

One scale measured comfortdiscomfort cntenu a 6-point scale ranging from very comfortable to very uncomfortable. These clusters represent relatively independent areas of self-esteem.

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].

Thus self-esteem is one intrapsychic factor that may be considered likely to influence the content of delusions and hallucinations. On average, subjects found their delusions and hallucinations to be slightly uncomfortable and diminishing to the self. Both were at the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry, a university-affiliated teaching centre in Toronto, Canada. Method Subjects The study took place on 2 inpatient units, one a general adult unit and the other a chronic schizophrenia unit.

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.

Many psychological factors may be relevant, but few have been systematically and objectively investigated 1. Schizoaffective disorder, manic episode and major depressive episode with psychotic features were each diagnosed in 5 subjects. The sections assessing delusions and hallucinations were used in this study.
