Adjustment Disorder in Children

An adjustment disorder in children involves an abnormal and excessive reaction to a stressful life event, including a difficult developmental transition. The child usually develops extreme emotional and/or behavioural symptoms within three months of the onset of the stressful event, which typically lasts no longer than six months after the stressful event has subsided. If a child exhibits any of the following emotions and/or behaviours, this may indicate an adjustment disorder.

  • Low spirits
  • Listlessness
  • Withdrawal
  • Tearful
  • Excessive worrying
  • Excessive fear
  • Irritable
  • Uncontrolled anger

  • Skipping or refusing to go to school
