Social adjustment was measured through social adjustment inventory constructed by Dr. R.C. Deva (1990).Similarly, coping strategies were assessed with the help of The Brief COPE scale. Findings of present research reported that primary caregivers of obsessive compulsive disorders have higher level of social adjustment and coping strategies as compared to caregivers of schizophrenia.
