  • Description: The current study investigated the hypothesis that marital and social adjustment deficits would be observed in married women who had been depressed previously. Three groups of subjects, currently depressed (N = 12), remitted (N = 12), and nondepressed (N = 12), who met criteria for participation completed the Dyadic Adjustment Scale and the Social Adjustment Scale. The results revealed that any residual social adjustment deficit in the remitted group was confined to social and leisure adjustment. Scores on the Dyadic Adjustment Scale, the work subscale of the Social Adjustment Scale, and the overall score on the Social Adjustment Scale revealed differences between the remitted and currently depressed groups. The results were discussed with reference to the likely correlational nature of marital and social maladjustment in depression and to future research needs.
