Abstract: This study examined symptomatology and social adjustment evaluated by a key person in the family of schizophrenic outpatients using the Katz Adjustment Scale. Although there were no differences seen in descriptions of symptomatology between 66 cases evaluated by mothers and 38 cases by other family members, significant differences were seen in assessment of social adjustment. Compared to other family members, mothers' expectation toward patients' socially expected activities was higher and mothers showed strong dissatisfaction with patients' free-time activities. Mothers showed more severe attitudes toward patients than other family members, but the evaluation of social adjustment by mothers showed a significant correlation with the severity of BPRS symptom evaluation by psychiatrists.
