In brief: Not a disorder
Regression is not a recognized mental disorder at this time.
Regression usually refers to behaviors or behavior patterns that were characteristic of an earlier time in one's life. Sometimes people who have experienced traumatic events in the past are reminded of these events and begin to behave or feel like they did when the traumatic event occurred. Therapy can be helpful for this problem.
