Adjustment disorder

A varied disorder of distress and emotional disturbance usually interfering with social functioning and performance arising from a significant life change or a stressful life. The causal event does not in any way reach the level of those leading to an acute stress reaction (see above). Symptoms include depressed mood, anxiety, worry (or a mixture of these), a feeling of inability to cope and plan ahead. The individual may be prone to dramatic behaviour or outbursts of violence. The disorder is usually transient and requires no treatment.
