Overview

A startling revelation about what ails many of our troubled children.

Bipolar not ADHD is intended to make everyone aware of how Bipolar Disorder, otherwise known as Manic Depressive Illness, especially in its atypical forms, is presently misunderstood and misdiagnosed as ADHD, Conduct Disorder, and other related behavioral disorders. It is also intended to make professionals and others who deal with troubled children become competent in identifying this serious and pervasive illness in children and adolescents and of being help to them.

A brief discussion of the etiology and treatment available for this illness and the social ramifications of this illness and its misdiagnosis in children is also included.

Bipolar not ADHD would be very valuable for psychiatrists, child psychiatrists, other professionals in the mental health fields, and students and professionals interested in child psychiatry and the mental health of children.

    A well organized discussion of this problem

    I found this book to be a straightforward presentation of why ADHD is often confused with bipolar disorder in children. The author seems to have a good deal of experience working with kids who have been given these diagnoses, and given the ubiquity of the ADHD diagnosis in children these days (someone should write a book called 'Ritalin Nation'), and the growing appreciation that bipolar disorder can have a childhood onset, the author has uncovered a huge problem in American medicine. This book can supplement the information present in more comprehensive books about childhood bipolar disorder, such as 'The Bipolar Child'. Overall, an interesting read.
