3 doctors agree

In brief: Yes

Hysterical and psychiatric terminology is equivalent to histrionic.
This refers to overly dramatic and emotional people. The term hysterical psychoses has no equivalent in the psychiatric terminology; but indirectly may be referring to a mood disorder with psychosis.
