Abstract

The aim of the study was to describe family dynamics in psychiatric patients. Correlations between family functioning, social functioning and qualityof life were examined. The study was carried out on a regionally representative sample of 297 psychiatric inpatient and outpatients and 89 of their relatives. Family cohesion and adaptability were investigated with the German version of the FamilyAdaptability and Cohesion Evaluation Scales. Patients were interviwed withthe Social Functioning Questionnaire and the Quality of Life Enjoyment andSatisfaction Questionnaire. About half of the patients (47%) described their families as extremely low cohesive themselves, and 20% of the patients described the adaptability as extremely low. Low family cohesion was associated with more problems in social functioning, lower quality of life and lower subjective well-being in patients. Low adaptability was correlated with weak social abilities and lower quality of life. The results highlight the importance of programmes which focus on family functioning.
