The Worker Role Interview (WRI) was developed as an assessment of psychosocial factors which influence work success and return to work following an injury. The instrument has been translated and adapted for Swedish culture. This article presents the findings from a study of the validity of the Swedish Worker Role Interview (SWRI) with a psychiatric population. Results indicate that the Swedish instrument is a valid measure of psychosocial capacity for work. Comparison of findings from the SWRI with research on the WRI indicates that the instrument is valid across both cultures and languages and can be used effectively with both physically and psychiatrically disabled clients.
