In brief: Favorable Prognosis

An adjustment disorder is diagnosed when an individual is unable to cope with a stressful life event.
The response to the stressful event is greater than one would expect. Examples would be divorce, relationship problems, change in jobs, moving to a different home, and financial worries. Talk therapy is usually recommended. Most patients get better within 6 months.
