This retrospective mixed-method study explored the subjective experiences of 36 individuals with a schizophrenic disorder who had previously participated in face-to-face social, behavioral or psychological research. Participants completed an in-person semi-structured interview containing quantitative rating scales with concurrent qualitative explanations to describe their prior research experience, perceptions of the research relationship, and similarities and differences between research and therapy. Subjects described an overwhelmingly positive experience participating in research, yet reported greater frequency of stress associated with participation than identified in prior research. Subjects acknowledged clear demarcation between the roles of a researcher and a psychotherapist. Study results provide direction for future researchers regarding the ethical and relational dynamics of research participation for subjects living with a schizophrenic disorder.
