This study was designed to examine the social relationships of adolescents with severe disorders. The study sample consisted of 33 adolescent inpatients in a psychiatric unit, as well as 33 nonhospitalized adolescents. Participants completed the Network of Relationship Inventory for an assessment of the quality of their relationships with mother, father, close friend, and other significant adults. In addition, friendship intimacy was assessed. Results showed nonhospitalized adolescents describing a close relationship with their parents, as well as with their close friends. Their relationships with their friends were mature. Hospitalized adolescents described a less close relationship with their parents, whereas they were close to and valued their relationships with their friends and other significant adults. Though both groups described similar levels of emotional closeness, hospitalized adolescents tended more to exert control or to evince a penchant for similarity to the other in their friendships. Results are discussed within the framework of adolescent social tasks.
