Adjustment Difficulties

Adjustment Difficulties describe the emotional and behavioural changes that some young people show after they have been through a significant life experience (e.g., parental separation/divorce; moving to a new house or school; birth of a sibling; a family member’s illness). If children are experiencing emotional or behavioural changes that do not appear to be lessening with time, and these are impacting on daily life in one or more areas (e.g., schoolwork, friendships, family life), then it may be helpful for parents to seek professional assistance with supporting their child’s coping/adjustment.
