Graham Spanier


The Dyadic Adjustment Scale is a 32 item self-report measure of relationship adjustment. Four factors are reported:

  1. Dyadic Satisfaction;
  2. Dyadic Consensus;
  3. Dyadic Cohesion and
  4. Affectional Expression.

Normative data is provided for married and recently divorced couples.

The scale has good reliability and has been used in many research studies with a wide variety of couples (married, co-habitating, homosexual, divorced), indicating good validity.


  • Brief measure - quickly completed by clients.
  • Wide variety of uses from couples counselling, effectiveness of therapy, at risk assessments, co-morbidity, etc.
