[Social diagnosis: assessment scales and evaluation of "social adjustment" of psychiatric patients].

[Article in German]

Abstract

For diagnostic and prognostic considerations, rehabilitation and outcome evaluation in patients with mental disorders it proved to be indispensable to diagnose not only psychopathology but also social impairment. This study gives a review about the different instruments assessing social adjustment, and their application in out- and inpatient settings. Part of the instruments are based on statements of relevant informants, whereas others are based on observable behaviour. Hints are given to expense, objectivity of assessment and repeated measurements.
