Streszczenie

Skala EASE jest listą objawów do częściowo ustrukturalizowanego fenomenologicznego badania subiektywnych lub empirycznych nieprawidłowości (anomalii), które można uznać za zaburzenia podstawowej, „minimalnej” samoświadomości. EASE opracowana została na podstawie samoopisów otrzymanych od pacjentów chorujących na zaburzenia ze spektrum schizofrenii. Skala ma duże znaczenie dla opisu, diagnozy oraz diagnozy różnicowej zaburzeń ze spektrum schizofrenii. Prezentowana wersja zawiera istotne szczegółowe kwestie dotyczące zbierania wywiadu oraz opisy objawów psychopatologicznych (Podręcznik), arkusz wyników (Aneks A), listę pozostałych pozycji Skali stosowanych w czasie wywiadu (Aneks B) oraz porównawczą listę pozycji EASE/BSABS (Bonner Skala für die Beurteilung von Basissymptomen, Bońska Skala do Oceny Objawów Podstawowych) (Aneks C).
