• Adjustment Difficulties


  • Adjustment difficulties may arise when significant changes happen in one’s life such as starting a new school or job, moving to a new state, divorce or ending a relationship or after experiencing a traumatic event. The emotional and personal distress can manifest as depression, anxiety and, feelings of inability to continue in the present situation or plan for the future. These states may affect a person’s ability to use their skills at full capacity and, therefore, prevent them from performing daily activities or social responsibilities. Treatment focuses on developing coping strategies to assist in the adjustment to the new situation or life change.
