Overview

The new series, Advances in Psychotherapy -- Evidence-Based Practice, provides therapists with practical, evidence-based guidance on the diagnosis and treatment of the most common disorders seen in clinical practice -- and does so in a uniquely "reader-friendly" manner. Each book is both a compact "how-to" reference on a particular disorder, for use by professional clinicians in their daily work, as well as an ideal educational resource for students and for practice-oriented continuing education. The most important feature of the books is that they are practical and simple to use. All have a similar structure, and each is a compact and easy-to-follow guide covering all aspects of practice that are relevant in real-life. Tables, boxed clinical "pearls," and marginal notes assist orientation, while checklists for copying and summary boxes provide tools for use in daily practice. The series has been developed and is edited with the support of the Society of Clinical Psychology (APA Division 12). The Society is planning a system of home study continuing education courses based on the series that an individual can complete on the web. The past 10 years have seen a dramatic increase of interest in psychosocial treatments of bipolar disorder. There is now substantial empirical evidence suggesting the effectiveness of such treatments. However, this accumulated information has not yet been transferred into clinical practice in many settings. Help is now at hand. This compact volume brings to the practitioner a comprehensive, evidence-based approach to the treatment of bipolar disorder that is practical, easily accessible, and can be readily applied in clinical practice. This practitioner’s guide begins by describing the main features of bipolar disorder and considerations for differential diagnosis based on DSM-IV and ICD-10 criteria. Following this, current theories and models are described, along with decision trees for evaluating the best treatment options. The volume then guides the reader through a systematic, integrated approach to treatment, based on the best of recent research. The authors describe a structured directive therapy that is also collaborative and client centered. Special considerations, including managing suicide risk, substance misuse, and medication nonadherence, are addressed. The volume is rounded off by the inclusion of clinically oriented tools and sample forms.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This is an exceptionally well-written and comprehensive book on bipolar disorder. The reader will find it an excellent reference for everyday clinical practice.
Purpose: The purpose is to present a series of evidence-based approaches to the treatment of bipolar disorder in an easy-to-read, practical manner. The book successfully discusses the challenges the practitioner faces in day-to-day practice. Considering the ever-changing state of the field, these are worthy objectives that are met by the authors.
Audience: Although written mainly for those psychiatrists and psychologists active in the mental health field, this book will be beneficial for graduate level students and residents. There is a multidisciplinary approach in the mental health field and as such, this book addresses those needs. The authors are highly credible and provide an interesting and enjoyable read.
Features: This is quite possibly the most thorough compact book on bipolar disorder. Case in point, the differential diagnosis of Bipolar I versus Bipolar II, Bipolar I and Bipolar II versus major depression, etc., is terrific. The various theories and models such as family-based and CBT are well covered. Treatment and treatment indications are practical, up-to-date, and cover such pertinent topics as suicide risk assessment and management, treatment adherence, and psychosocial stressors.
Assessment: This is definitely one of the standout books of the year in terms of additive value to the field, comprehensiveness, and applicability to the daily practice of clinicians. Highly recommended.
