Patrick was a happy, well-adjusted fifth grader. When he learned that his family would be moving from their suburban community to a nearby large city he became very upset and was angry when his parents kept brushing off his fears. After the move he refused to go to the new school; when forced to do so, he created crises for many weeks which resulted in his spending time sitting outside the principal’s office, waiting for one of his parents to arrive. He stopped eating and was losing weight. According to DSM-5 this describes:
A. Adjustment Disorder
C. Anorexia Nervosa
D. Oppositional Defiant Disorder
The correct answer is "A. Adjustment Disorder".
