The assessment of social adjustment. An update.


Since a review of 15 social adjustment scales appeared six years ago in the ARCHIVES, a number of new scales have been developed and tested. Twelve new scales, three written self-administered and nine interviewer-administered scales, are considered to be useful in clinical and epidemiologic research in psychiatry. Future research in this area should include development of scales for use with children, adolescents, and the elderly; revision of scales to reflect changes in traditional roles, especially among women; clarification of the concepts underlying social functioning; and systematic explication and measurement of these concepts.
