Abstract

The aim of the authors was to investigate the relation of psychopathological factors in particular the role of narcissism, self-esteem, depression, anxiety and aggression - to the self-destructive behaviour. Suicidal and non-suicidal patients among neurotic, borderline, schizophrenic patients as well as in normal control groups were investigated, by using of the ego structure test (ISTA, Ammon) and in part of the test battery of the WHO/Euro study on suicide attempters. The results are analysed and discussed on the background of dynamic psychiatry's integrative model.
