Summary or Abstract : Alfred Adler's construct of Gemeinschaftsgefیhl or social interest is explored in severe and persistently mentally ill adults. The study investigates whether social interest, as measured by the Sulliman Scale of Social Interest (SSSI; Sulliman, 1973) and the Belonging and Social Interest Scale (BSI) of the Basic Adlerian Scale for Interpersonal Success-Adult Form (BASIS-A; Curlette, Wheeler, & Kern, 1997), is an adequate measure of psychiatric functioning as measured by psychiatric hospital readmission and score on the Multnomah Community Ability Scale-Self-Report Version (MCAS-SR; O'Malia, McFarland, Barker, & Barron, 2002). A sample of 41 consumers in a program of Assertive Community Treatment (PACT; Stein & Test, 1980) were employed. Results showed significant, positive correlations between the BSI and SSSI ( p < .001), and an effect size of .40, which was larger than expected. The BSI correlated significantly with total score of the MCAS-SR ( p < .01), as did both subscales and total score of the SSSI ( p < .001). The total score of the SSSI was the best measure of global level of psychiatric functioning due to it having the highest correlation with total score of the MCAS-SR ( r = .66, p < .001). Combining scores of the BSI and SSSI did not add to the ability the SSSI to predict level of psychiatric functioning. The SSSI predicted social competence better than the BSI, which was contrary to expected results. Results indicate that social interest is an adequate measure of mental health with severe and persistently mentally ill adults, and the SSSI is a more adequate measure than the BSI. It is suggested that the SSSI be combined with measurable behaviors that reflect genuine social interest to form a more valid method of measuring social interest. Future research should also control for the conscious self-deception form of social desirability (Leak, 2004)..
