Anomalous Self-Experiences: Markers of Schizophrenia Vulnerability or Symptoms of Depersonalization Disorder? A Phenomenological Investigation of Two Cases
TLDR
The DPD case may be characterized only by secondary ASEs and thus better protected against psychotic decompensation than the SPD case, tentatively affected by a combination of primary and secondary A SEs.
Self and world experience in non-affective first episode of psychosis
Disordered Self in the Schizophrenia Spectrum: A Clinical and Research Perspective
TLDR
Empirical studies support the classic clinical intuition that anomalous self-experiences form a central phenotype of schizophrenia, and outline the phenomenological structures of subjectivity that are needed for grasping the nature of these anomalous experiential phenomena.
Disorders of agency and self in the schizophrenic spectrum
Schizophrenia is a complex condition which manifests in a broad variety of symptoms, including alterations in the subjective experience of one as a self within the world, which are termed self
Disturbed Experience of Self: Psychometric Analysis of the Self-Experience Lifetime Frequency Scale (SELF)
TLDR
The findings of the current study suggest that it is feasible to screen for self-disturbance phenomena in patients with psychotic disorders with the Self-Experience Lifetime Frequency scale (SELF), a validated screener for symptoms of depersonalization complemented by questions covering several other domains of self- Disturbance.
Phenomenology and neurobiology of self disorder in schizophrenia: Secondary factors
Varieties of Self Disorder: A Bio-Pheno-Social Model of Schizophrenia.
TLDR
A bio-pheno-social model is preferable to uni-dimensional alternatives to account for distinctive yet varying experiential and neurocognitive abnormalities found in research on schizophrenia, and to integrate these with recent psychosocial and neurobiological findings.

Basic Self-Disturbances beyond Schizophrenia: Discrepancies and Affinities in Panic Disorder - An Empirical Clinical Study
TLDR
This study supports the basic-self-disturbance model of schizophrenia, while suggesting the possibility of transnosological “schizophrenia-like phenomena,” which might require careful phenomenological exploration to be distinguished from those of true psychotic or schizophrenic conditions.

Phenomenology of anomalous self-experience in early schizophrenia.
TLDR
Detailed clinical phenomenological descriptions of nonpsychotic anomalies of self-experience that may be observable in the prodromal phases of schizophrenia and in the schizotypal disorders are presented.
EASE: Examination of Anomalous Self-Experience
TLDR
The EASE does not cover all potential anomalies of experience, but focuses only on the disorders of the self, which cannot be used alone as a diagnostic instrument.
Anomalous Self-Experience in Adolescents at Risk of Psychosis
TLDR
This clinical report describes disorders of self-experience in a small sample of 11 subjects fulfilling the Criteria of Prodromal Syndromes and suggests that the concept of anomalous self-Experience should be further elaborated theoretically as well as empirically.
Schizophrenia, consciousness, and the self.
TLDR
This article proposes a unifying account emphasizing basic abnormalities of consciousness that underlie and also antecede a disparate assortment of signs and symptoms of schizophrenic symptoms, and introduces the phenomenological approach along with a theoretical account of normal consciousness and self-awareness.
Feeling unreal: 30 cases of DSM-III-R depersonalization disorder.
TLDR
This study supports the conceptualization of depersonalization disorder as a distinct disorder with a characteristic course that is independent of mood, anxiety, and personality symptoms, and suggests a subtle relationship may exist between childhood trauma and depersonALization disorder that merits further investigation.
Anomalous Subjective Experience among First-Admitted Schizophrenia Spectrum Patients: Empirical Investigation
TLDR
In this study, 151 consecutive first-admitted patients diagnosed according to the ICD-10, were evaluated on a number of expressive and experiential psychopathological dimensions, with special emphasis on the experiences of perplexity, disorders of self-awareness, perceptual disorders and anomalous bodily experiences.
Negative symptoms, schizophrenia, and the self
Currently, the most prominent way of subtyping schizophrenic symptoms is the distinction between the “positive” and “negative” syndromes (often supplemented by a third group of “disorganization”

Looking at the Schizophrenia Spectrum Through the Prism of Self-disorders: An Empirical Study
TLDR
The assumption that SDs are a discriminant psychopathological feature of the schizophrenia spectrum is supported and their incorporation is suggested to strengthen its construct validity, with potential benefit for both early detection and pathogenetic research.
Feeling unreal: a depersonalization disorder update of 117 cases.
TLDR
The characteristics of depersonalization disorder found in this sample, the largest described to date, are in good accord with previous literature, and the study highlights the need for novel therapeutic approaches to treat depersonALization disorder.
