SASSR Social Adjustment Scale – Self-report, German translation with modified scale scores

M. M. Weissman, Deutsch: J. von Wietersheim


Assesses social integration in various areas of life.
People are considered to be socially integrated if they handle their instrumental tasks (dealing with their workload, active involvement in social and family life) with a sense of well-being and are able to maintain emotional links with their fellow human beings. The level of social integration can vary in different fields of life and it is therefore assessed separately for different situations. This integration can be impaired in a number of mental and psychosomatic disorders. The test is therefore used to clarify the respondent’s health status and verify the success of treatment in clinical neuropsychology.


Respondents state how often in the last two weeks they have experienced various behaviors or emotional states. They also answer questions on their general life situation.


The following main variables are scored:

  • Work: Questions are asked about absences, performance, difficulties with colleagues, feelings of anger or shame at work and interest in work.
  • Leisure and social activities: Questions are asked about frequency of social contacts, opportunities for talking about feelings, leisure activities, difficulties with social relationships, emotional satisfaction with contact with others and interest in the opposite sex.
  • Relatives: Questions are asked about relationships with distant family members, discussion of feelings, dependence, rebellion, worries about family members, feelings of being abandoned by relatives.
  • Partnership: Questions are asked about the extent of arguments, discussion of feelings, dominant assertiveness and passive submission, dependence on one’s partners, emotional attraction and aspects of the sexual relationship.
  • Parents: Questions are asked about interest in their children, communication, disputes and feelings towards the children.
  • Family cohesion: Questions are asked about unfounded worries about one’s partner and children and about feelings of having abandoned the others or been abandoned by them.
  • Finances: Questions are asked about whether there is enough money to meet the needs of the respondent and his/her family.
