Types of Adjustment Disorder

Everyone reacts to change differently, and Adjustment Disorder can present uniquely in each individual. Your symptoms may fluctuate between these types, or you may find yourself relating to multiple types at the same time. As stressful as life transitions are, therapy can help give you the tools to properly manage the stress, disorder, and pressure of change. Common types of Adjustment Disorder include:
