Sometimes we are forced to deal with transitions that come unexpectedly, like a divorce or a career change. Other times, we are ready to make a transition but find the prospect of change crippling. In either scenario, LifeLens can help with your life transition issues. You might also be seeking help on how to manage transition issues in a family member’s life. Oftentimes those who care for aging parents have difficulty approaching transitions into nursing care, away from driving, and other thresholds that signal major life changes for a parent.
How do you know if you’re suffering from an adjustment disorder? Mayo Clinic says the first indicator is that you are within three months of a stressful event in your life. As a result, you experience any number of signs including sadness, nervousness, anxiety, insomnia, feeling overwhelmed, and other emotional symptoms. You may also find yourself more willing to avoid family or friends, argue or fight with others, ignore paying bills, or drive recklessly.
Treatment for life transition issues typically involves a form of psychotherapy. It may be one-on-one counseling, family therapy or group therapy – depending upon your individual circumstances. Finding coping skills to address the changes in your life and techniques to handle stress are all part of resuming the normal routine of your life. For many people, treatment for life transition issues is a short-term need. After a brief number of sessions, you should notice a change in your symptoms and a newfound capability where your stressors are concerned.
