Abstract

 Objective: The present study was aimed at comparing INTERPERSONAL SENSITIVITY and ASSERTIVENESS between DRUG-dependent persons and ORDINARY PEOPLE.Method: The research method was causal-comparative. The statistical population of the study consisted of all narcotic addicts of Tabriz City who referred to Addiction Treatment Centers while the research was being conducted. The number of 30 addicted persons was selected through cluster sampling and 30 ordinary persons as control group through convenience sampling method. Gmbryl & Ritchie’s ASSERTIVENESS questionnaire (1975) and Boyce & Parker’s INTERPERSONAL SENSITIVITY Measure (IPSM; 1989) were used for data collection purposes.Results: The results showed that there was a statistically significant difference between two groups in terms of INTERPERSONAL SENSITIVITY and ASSERTIVENESS. The addicts showed less ASSERTIVENESS and more INTERPERSONAL SENSITIVITY in comparison with their healthy counterparts.Conclusion: The findings show that people who are unable to express themselves and exert sensitivity in interpersonal relationships are more likely at high risk of substance dependence. However, it is possible to prevent these persons from turning to addiction by teaching them these skills.
