The SAS-SR provides you with an understanding of an individual's level of satisfaction with their social situation. It is often used to evaluate the efficacy of treatment by revealing the effect treatment is having on the respondent. The SAS-SR is used by psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and other mental health professionals in clinical or research settings.
Key Areas Measured
- Instrumental Role Performance
- Expressive Role Performance
How to Use the Assessment
The SAS-SR includes the original version as well as the new short (SAS-SR:Short) and screener (SAS-SR:Screener) versions.
Social Adjustment Scale-Self Report:Short (SAS-SR:Short)
The short version is ideal when time with the respondent is limited. but information from each role area is required. It provides scores for both the Instrumental and Expressive role areas; however, it does not provide as much detail at the item response level. It is effective for monitoring treatment progress and outcome assessment.
Social Adjustment Scale-Self Report:Screener (SAS-SR:Screener)
The screener version is a unidimentional scale that is intended for screening for test batteries, or for pharmaceutical research programs. It provides one score that indicates whether or not further examination may be necessary.
Normative Data The normative sample for the SAS-SR included 482 individuals ranging in age from 20 to 70.
