|Abstract:||Self-disturbances are being increasingly recognized as important, possibly even central, features of schizophrenia spectrum disorders; however, little is known about the associations among different manifestations of self-disturbances. The aims of the current study replicate previous findings of self-disturbances in schizophrenia, compare domains of self-disturbances in schizophrenia and in a control sample, and compare self- disturbances with other symptoms and deficits in schizophrenia. The three domains of self-experience included somatosensation and body perception, phenomenological self- experiences, and dialogical self. Participants included 48 individuals with schizophrenia and 36 non-psychiatric controls. The results of this study replicate previous findings of deficits in phenomenological self-experiences and dialogical self, as well as bottom-up somatosensation. The results also indicated consistent associations between the domains of phenomenological self-experience and dialogical self, but not somatosensation. Somatosensation was associated with more negative symptoms of schizophrenia, while phenomenological self-experience and dialogical self were associated with higher levels of positive symptoms.|
