Overview

A comprehensive approach to the treatment of bipolar disorder, this book details an innovative program of interventions that augments rather than replaces pharmacotherapy. Topics covered include patient and family education, early symptom detection for the prevention of relapse, methods for the enhancement of treatment compliance, strategies for the remediation of subsyndromal symptoms of depression and mania, and ways to identify and resolve psychosocial and interpersonal problems. Each chapter provides session-by-session instructions, as well as patient assignments and clear and concise directions for the implementation of each intervention.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book integrates pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy in the management of bipolar illness." --G.A. Fave, Bologna. Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics. Karger 1997.

"In what is probably the best organized book that I have ever encountered, the authors cover every aspect of bipolar disorder and its treatment....Basco and Ruch write in clear prose and keep technical jargon to a minimum. Bipolar patients are often well educated and intelligent individuals, and both patients and their family members alike should find this book intelligible and helpful in coping with the symptoms of the disorder. Patients and family members will also find the list of mental health organizations and the educational material in the appendix very useful. Replete with references and good illustrations and engagingly written, this is a book that will aso be welcomed by both therapists and researchers interested in the biology of bipolar affective disorders." --Edward S. Matalka in Science Books and Films

"Over the nearly 50 that have passed since Cade's discovery of the therapeutic potential of lithium salts, the biomedical model of understanding and treating bipolar affective disorders has dominated the field. However, a significant number of people suffering from this classic psychiatric illness do not respond to standard medications and an even larger number do not adhere to prescribed therapies. Ample evidence also suggests that psychosocial factors such as stressful life events, personality profiles, and social support may further mediate or moderate the clinical course and treatment outcomes of bipolar disorder. Therefore, development of a practical and coherent psychosocial therapy specifically tailored to the needs of patients with bipolar disorder is long overdue. Basco and Rush have accomplished this in fine fashion in their text Cognitive-Behavior Therapy for Bipolar Disorder. This book describes a system of therapy intended to complement and enhance pharmacotherapies and includes attention to self-monitoring of symptoms, improving pharmacotherapy adherence, problem solving, and applying cognitive and behavioral strategies to help manage depressive and hypomanic symptoms. The book is well-suited for use by the full range of mental health professionals and may be particularly helpful to nonmedical therapists who work in tandem with prescribing psychiatrists. I highly recommend!" --Michael E. Thase, M.D.

"This is an excellent which will revolutionize our thinking about the treatment offered to clients with bipolar disorder. Monica Basco and A. John Rush are to be applauded on producing the first textbook that provides systematic and practical guidance on how to undertake cognitive behavior therapy with clients with this very serious and debilitating mental disorder. The authors draw on their rich clinical and research experience to give a detailed description of the techniques and strategies that may benefit this client population. Most importantly, they explain with remarkable clarity how to offer an integrated psychological and pharmacological package of care to individuals with bipolar disorder." --Jan Scott, MD, FRCPsych, Professor of Psychology, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Patricia M. Meaden, PhD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a valuable handbook for implementing a cognitive-behavioral approach to psychotherapy in conjunction with medication management for bipolar patients. The authors address the difficulties and advantages of working with bipolar patients and their families. This realistic approach seeks to enhance medication compliance and reduce psychosocial stressors to improve outcomes in this chronic population.
Purpose: This handbook provides an adjunct treatment methodology to be used in conjunction with pharmacotherapy for bipolar patients. The authors offer a detailed, semi-structured psychotherapy model that incorporates established cognitive-behavioral techniques that they have customized for use in the treatment of patients with bipolar disorder.
Audience: The authors have written this book for therapists and researchers who would be in a position to provide help for bipolar patients and their families.
Features: The organization, illustration, and case examples in this book offer a wealth of information to guide the practitioner in psychotherapy. Of particular interest are the well-illustrated homework assignments and checklists to be used by the therapist in providing consistent, thorough care to patients and their families. The reference list includes boldface type for information recommended as reading assignments for patients.
Assessment: Bipolar patients are reputedly difficult to work with in psychotherapy. As pharmaceutical advances have been made in the treatment of this disorder, it is not surprising that interest in psychosocial interventions has diminished. As the authors point out, however, psychosocial stressors continue to influence the onset and course of this disorder. Using well-established techniques that have been successful in improving outcomes for patients with other affective disorders, these highly experienced authors have made an excellent contribution to providing a useful means of establishing and maintaining psychotherapeutic relationships with bipolar patients. Their model also lends itself well to use in research settings where the effectiveness of this approach can be empirically validated.

    Excellent book about one aspect of bipolar disorder treatment

    This book should be read by anyone trying to optimize treatment of bipolar disorder through the use of cognitive-behavioral therapy. In fact it should be read both by patients and by therapists and possibly psychiatrists too. The book is well written, well organized, and fairly easy to understand. It is not intended to be a comprehensive guide to surviving bipolar disorder- if the reader wants a comprehensive guide, see Torrey's 'Surviving Manic Depression' and Miklowitz's 'Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide'. But for just learning about cognitive-behavioral therapy, this book is excellent.
