Overview

Clinical Manual for Management of Bipolar Disorder in Children and Adolescents was written in response to the growing body of knowledge surrounding pediatric bipolar illness and the underlying biological, environmental, and psychosocial influences that exacerbate symptoms and behavior. Written to provide clinically useful information about diagnosis and management, this manual is a comprehensive collection of empirical evidence, case studies, and the growing number of evidence-based reports on pediatric bipolar disorder over the past five years.

This manual also contains several chapters provided by Dr. Mary Fristad and her team at The Ohio State University -- experts in family and psychosocial aspects of pediatric bipolar disorder. Her contributions, along with vast clinical evidence and the expertise provided by Drs. Kowatch, Findling, and Post, help paint an accurate picture of everything from age onset to the effectiveness of various therapies. In this manual, clinicians can refer to the following tools:• A clinical description of childhood and adolescent bipolar disorder • Management strategies for the patient including daily mood charting• Current medication strategies and tactics• Ways to help patients through the educational system• Resources for clinicians, parents and patients• A review of the future directions for childhood and adolescent bipolar disorder

The many new developments in the field of pediatric bipolar disorder are affirming what this manual emphasizes -- that a combination of family and cognitive-behavior therapy can work in tandem with medical treatments to help young bipolar disorder patients achieve a more balanced life and a greater chance of controlling this illness later in life. The manual demonstrates how the medical community has shifted from asking, "Does bipolar disorder really exist in children and adolescents" to "How can we best predict, diagnose and treat this serious medical disorder" through a review of 25 years of study and insight.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of child and adolescent psychopharmacology
This is a book that has the potential to be helpful to wide range of clinicians who treat psychiatric disorders in children and adolescents. But perhaps what is most valuable about this book is that it offers medication management strategies that are based on the authors' experience and wisdom. With some effort and a good library, facts, studies and general knowledge are relatively easy to obtain. However, to be able to have the equivalent of immediate supervision from these very experiences clinicians is truly a special contribution to this field. — Journal of child and adolescent psychopharmacology.
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Arshdeep S. Jawandha, MBBS (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This pocket-sized book covers bipolar illness in the pediatric population, including diagnosis, course, and treatment.
Purpose: It provides clinically useful information on the diagnosis and treatment of bipolar disorder in children and adolescents. The authors succeed in providing a much needed, easy to understand, and quick to read sourcebook.
Audience: Although a target audience is not identified, it appears to include all levels of providers who work with children and adolescents with bipolar illness.
Features: The book first covers epidemiology and clarifies the definitions and then moves on to a case-based discussion of the diagnosis of bipolar disorder. The discussion of etiology and the neurobiological basis uses easy to understand and remember figures. Separate chapters are dedicated to mood stabilizers and atypical antipsychotics in the treatment part. Treatment is discussed using case examples, which helps for easier comprehension and application of treatment principles. The strength of this book is the inclusion of chapters on working with families and working with schools, an area that is sometimes confusing for care providers. The many tables and figures make for easy reference to information. A resource list for caregivers amplifies information. Some explanation of K-SADS mania rating scales and a discussion of comorbid conditions and treatment are very useful inclusions as well.
Assessment: This clinical manual is a must-have on the shelves of all providers who treat children and adolescents with bipolar illness.
