Abstract:

We all have to deal with stress sometimes. Learning to balance our many responsibilities, adjust to new situations, and handle multiple stresses is part of life. But does this mean that you should feel stressed all the time? What if you always feel overwhelmed? What if you simply can t adjust to a new challenge or situation? When the normal challenges of life cause such extreme emotional turmoil that a person cannot adapt and react appropriately, he may be suffering from an adjustment disorder. ?Those who suffer from adjustment disorders find it particularly difficult to adapt and function in their daily environments. Perhaps they are dealing with a loss or change in life, such as divorce, moving, a new baby, or an end to a relationship. Perhaps they overreact to minor stresses or have anxiety, depression, or conduct disorders that interrupt their normal life functions. When their inability to cope becomes a mental illness, people need help from medical professionals to gain control of their lives again. ?In Adjustment Disorders, you will learn about the antidepressants and anti-anxiety drugs available to treat adjustment disorders. Along the way, you will read about the history of psychiatric drugs, how they work, and current treatment methods. You will also read valuable information about what to expect when taking psychiatric drugs, as well as some of the most prevalent alternatives to drug treatment. Sharing the experiences of young people as they cope with divorce, disappointment, moving, depression, and anxiety may help you understand how such changes can affect your life as well and where to turn if your reactions to these changes get out of control.
