Overview

Synthesizing the latest information on the nature and management of bipolar illness, this volume presents a range of effective psychosocial treatment approaches. Coverage includes cognitive, family-focused, group, and interpersonal and social rhythm therapies. Well-known clinical scientists review the conceptual and empirical bases of their respective modalities and offer detailed, practical descriptions of therapeutic procedures. Elucidated are the ways psychosocial interventions can improve medication adherence, reduce risks for manic and depressive episodes, and enhance the client's overall functioning. Current approaches to adult and child assessment are delineated, as are strategies for integrating psychological and pharmacological treatments. Special topics addressed include managing suicidality and connecting clients to needed self-help resources and support. Appendices feature sample assessment instruments and other useful materials.
