In brief: Should go away

Adjustment disorder is a term used to describe problems someone is having dealing with a specific situation.
Quite commonly, as conditions change, the child's reaction does too. Treatment certainly may speed the process, but the natural course should be improvement over time, especially if the stressor is dealt with.

In brief: Yes

Possible, but not a " slam dunk".
With proper therapy, including counseling and medication the outlook may be very good. But it does not happen overnight. It takes time and great patience
