About Adjustment Disorder

Adjustment disorder is identified in people who typically exhibit extreme responses to certain situations or events. Such situations are usually stressors that trigger maladaptive responses in people suffering from adjustment disorders. A maladaptive response is when your response to a situation or the people in it, make the problem worse – not better. Let us take a detailed look at its causes, symptoms, and treatments.


Adjustment issues can be triggered by any stressful event that overwhelms a persons ability to cope. It could be the loss of a loved one, a relationship issue, financial issues, work issues, or any such event that challenges your ability to cope. Children also exhibit adjustment disorders that could be triggered by problems at school, serious health issues, etc.


Usually the symptoms include frequent crying, feeling sad and hopeless, experiencing anxiety, being irritable, and having trouble sleeping, eating, or concentrating. There are more telltale signs of adjustment disorders, which vary from person to person depending on how they react to situations.


If you are not coping, you can to see a psychologist who is qualified to diagnose and treat adjustment disorders. A psychologist can talk to you, let you know if there is a problem, and proceed with the treatment. Treatment techniques have been well researched and we offer a range of approaches. The important thing is that you can move forward having learned new coping skills, that you can continue to apply in the long term.

Benefits of Seeing a Psychologist

Right Diagnosis

Adjustment disorders, are usually diagnosed by your GP, and he or she may give a mental health care plan so that you can access the Medicare rebate. Adjustment disorders typically respond well to an intervention that teaches a new way of understanding your situation and new ways of coping and responding to events in your life. You can attend to see a psychologist without seeing a GP, by just using private health cover rebates or simply just paying the fee.
