The method for reaching the aim in this study was to study, listen and read books written by persons with Schizophrenia and to analyze these books. It felt natural to use autobiographies of schizophrenic persons. The result showed that there were two themes and seven sub themes. The two themes were positive experiences and negative experiences. A positive experience was when they felt some happiness and joy, confirmation, safety and calmness from the person they met. Negative experience was feeling violated, not being confirmed and self- contempt. Conclusions of this study is that giving persons with the diagnosis schizophrenia confirmation and show respect is crucial for a positive experience of meeting with others.
