Objectives Aim of this study is to investigate the self-narration of patients with schizophrenia.
Methods The study was done by narrative analysis and the statistical sample consisted of nine patients with schizophrenia, who were selected through purposive sampling. Research instruments used were Mental Status Examination form (MSE) and McAdams life story interview. Structural analysis and content analysis methods were used for analyzing data.
Results Results showed that the narrations of these patients began with an unstable situation in which there were some clues of a great chaos. This chaos is usually caused due to schizophrenia that totally impacts the narrator’s life. According to content analysis the main theme of the narrations of patients with schizophrenia was be sacrificed. Rejection, insecurity, loneliness, shame, and guilt were other important themes in their narrations. The absence of a father and an over-involved mother were also the themes of the narration.
Conclusion Data showed that the self-perception of patients with schizophrenia was self-centered perception and the illness had a critical role to play in that.
