Abstract: Background: Anxiety disorders are two of the most common mental health concerns in our society. They are often experienced as a complex set of emotional and functional challenges. In the daily life of people, they are exposed to stressful situations; sometimes these stressors may develop to be an illnesses and mental disorders like clinically significant anxiety and other negative psychological states. Generalized Anxiety Disorder is one of the most common anxiety disorders. Its core features are constant apprehension and worry about the future. These patients experience a group of cognitive, affective, behavioural and physical symptoms. Recent research has shown that meta-cognitive processes are often involved in the etiology of generalized anxiety disorder. Once the symptoms arise, it slowly leads to poor adjustment of the patients in the different domains of their lives. The clinical symptoms of this disorder often lead to significant impairment in the patients’ day to day functioning. Method: The current study aimed to examine adjustment in the patients with generalized anxiety disorder. The researcher used a cross sectional design in the current study. The measure used was Adjustment scale by Barakat (2006). Result and Conclusion: The results of the study found that patients with generalized anxiety disorder were poor and low in the adjustment. The study has implications for training these patients in effective psychological skills to enhance their adjustment and better deal with the clinical conditions and thereby improve their well-being.
