  1. psychoneurotic

    Psychoneurotic refers to a category of psychological disorders characterized primarily by anxiety, irrational fears, compulsions, or obsessions, which are unconsciously used to avoid or reduce the perceived external threats, conflicts or stressful situations. These disorders are usually not associated with severe abnormalities of thought, such as delusions or hallucinations, and do not typically involve serious impairments of social or occupational functioning, unlike psychoses. The term is now rarely used in contemporary psychiatry, having been largely replaced by specific disorder categories such as anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, etc.
