Overview

Biopolar disorder has served as a principal point of focus for modern psychiatric research since the advent of the psychopharmacological revolution. Yet, the disparity between optimal and typical care for biopolar disorder is perhaps nowhere larger, and its human and economic impact nowhere greater.

An important and much-needed resource, Bipolar Disorders: Clinical Course and Outcome relates empirical data on outcome with practical information on the prognosis, course, and potential complications of bipolar disorders in the modern era.

Pulling together current knowledge on bipolar disorders from leading investigators in the field, Bipolar Disorders provides a concise, up-to-date summary of affective relapse, comorbid psychopathology, functional disability, and psychosocial outcome in contemporary bipolar disorders. Important issues regarding pharmacoeconomics and the burden of disease are presented in conjunction with a discussion of mania through the life cycle and a summary of clinical and treatment implications.

In addition, this timely resource covers the effect of lithium and anticonvulsants on outcome during controlled and naturalistic treatment; manic outcome in relation to specific comorbidities or subtypes of illness for mixed mania, alcoholism or other substance abuse, rapid-cycling bipolar disorders, hypomania, and comorbid anxiety disorders; individual psychotherapy and family psychoeducation; and the role of public sector psychiatry and community-based treatment programs for chronic bipolar illness.

As part of the Clinical Practice Series of the American Psychiatric Press, this book integrates current clinical research findings with practical clinical applications, providing a broad overview of course and outcome for bipolar patients treated under typical treatment conditions. Aimed at both clinicians and investigators, this book consciously relates naturalistic follow-up studies in mania to the routine clinical management of bipolar disorders over time.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia M. Meaden, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This edited volume is a comprehensive update of information about bipolar disorder, contrasting historical portrayals of the clinical course and outcome with current descriptive and empirical findings.
Purpose: The purpose is to summarize current research on bipolar disorder, addressing the apparent changes that have taken place in the presentation of the illness and our clinical understanding of treatment strategies and their effect on course and outcome. This work is significant and timely, given the numerous changes in the clinical approaches to bipolar disorder apparent in the last half of this century.
Audience: The editors have written this book to expand the knowledge base of any practitioner likely to encounter bipolar patients and their families, especially considering the high incidence of misdiagnosis. Researchers will also find this book invaluable as it summarizes the most relevant current research, pointing the way to areas that need further inquiry.
Features: The content includes chapters covering relapse, comorbidity, functional disability, and psychosocial effects, suggesting reasons for the changes observed in recent years. Explanations focus on innovation in psychopharmacology, diagnostic criteria, and sociocultural influences.
Assessment: This is the most authoritative and comprehensive compendium of knowledge on the subject of bipolar disorder since Goodwin and Jamison's Manic Depressive Illness (Oxford University Press, 1990). The editors have done an admirable job of coordinating the efforts of some of the most competent and creative researchers in this area. The careful organization of this book will provide significant guideposts in directing future research in bipolar disorder. In addition, this book provides the rationale for a concerted initiative by clinicians to work to identify and treat this disorder in a timely and consistent manner.
New England Journal of Medicine
Bipolar disorder continues to be an important challenge to psychiatry, and this book documents our failure to meet this challenge. As such, it deserves to be studied by all serious students of bipolarity. They will be rewarded by the considerable scholarship reflected in the individual chapters.

Compiles the findings from several research programs studying the naturalistic course of what used to be called manic-depression, based partly on contributions to the 1995 annual meeting of the American Psychiatric Association. Presents empirical data on the outcome along with practical information on the prognosis, course, and potential complications in the modern era. The findings are summarized in a final chapter.
