Abstract The functioning of families of five psychiatric groups and a group of nonclinical families was assessed by the Family Assessment Device (FAD), a recently developed multidimensional measure of family functioning. The results indicated that families of patients with major depression, alcohol dependence, and adjustment disorder reported greater family dysfunction than nonclinical families. Families of schizophrenic and bipolar patients did not differ significantly from controls.
