What are effective interventions for adjustment disorder?


The aim of this Rapid Evidence Assessment (REA) was to examine the evidence for the efficacy of psychological or pharmacological interventions targeting adjustment disorder in adults. Adjustment disorder is a psychiatric diagnosis that occurs in response to a stressful or traumatic event. It is diagnosed when an individual responds to a stressful/traumatic event with clinical distress or impairment, and anxiety/depression-like symptoms, but does not meet criteria for any other psychiatric disorder.
