Psychotherapy: As the primary treatment type for adjustment disorder with anxiety, psychotherapy is known as "talk therapy" for individual, group, or family therapy. Some of its salient features include helping the client understand stress management and learn coping skills for future stressful events, allowing the client to return to a routine, and providing emotional support during heightened sensitivity.
Lifestyle adjustments- Helping the survivor of an adjustment disorder to build resilience against future traumatic events while avoiding the emergence of their symptoms is at the core of this treatment type.
Relapse prevention therapy- Relapse prevention therapy is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy that helps clients develop skills to prevent a foreseeable relapse.
