Self-stigmatization amongst people with schizophrenia : A threat to the self (English)
Abstract [sv]

Självstigmatisering är en komplex process som innebär att personer riskerar att ta till sig negativa stereotyper och attityder som riktas mot dem. Under de senaste årtiondena har intresset ökat kring självstigmatisering men det finns fortfarande lite forskningen kring fenomenet. Syftet med studien var att beskriva självstigmatisering hos personer med schizofreni. Studien utfördes som en litteraturstudie, där åtta vetenskapliga artiklar har granskats och analyserats. Resultatet visade att det finns ett flertal olika faktorer som påverkar graden av självstigmatisering hos personer med schizofreni, bland annat antalet psykiatriska inläggningar och sjukdomens svårighetsgrad. Självstigmatisering visade sig också resultera i en negativ syn på sig själv och sina egna förmågor. Ytterligare kvantitativ forskning behövs, men det finns också ett stort behov av kvalitativ forskning som fokuserar på individens egna erfarenheter och upplevelser av självstigmatisering. Vården behöver bli bättre på att förstå och uppmärksamma självstigmatisering. Evidensbaserad omvårdnad behöver utvecklas utifrån omvårdnadsprocessens alla steg för att minska självstigmatisering. 

Abstract [en]

Self-stigmatization is a complex process which implies that the person might internalize negative stereotypes and attitudes that are directed towards them. The interest for self-stigmatization has increased during the last decade, but there is still little research on the phenomenon. The aim of this study was to describe self-stigmatization amongst people with schizophrenia. The study was conducted as a literature study, where eight scientific articles were reviewed and analyzed. The results showed that the degree of self-stigmatization amongst people with schizophrenia was affected by a various of factors, including the number of psychiatric hospitalizations and the severity of the illness. Self-stigmatization also proved to result in a negative view on oneself and the own abilities. Further quantitative research is needed, but there is also a great need for qualitative research that focuses on individual’s own experiences. The health care needs to better understand and pay attention to self-stigmatization. Efforts in evidence-based nursing also needs to be developed based on all the steps in the nursing process to reduce self-stigmatization.
