Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is a unique offering, imparting important scholarly information that is highly useful to the research driven practitioner. Clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and other research trained mental health providers will find it good reading about current treatment and research strategies."—Doody's
Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Susan Richardson, MA, PsyD (Private Practice)
Description: This compilation of the latest research on the psychological aspects of bipolar disorder is a collection of scholarly, sometimes technical, studies.
Purpose: The purpose is to impart knowledge about what the latest psychological research on bipolar disorder suggests. The focus on this disorder has been primarily genetic for the last 10 to 15 years and the editors feel that the research on the wide variety of psychological processes of bipolar disorder have been neglected.
Audience: Given the specificity of the topics and research driven studies, this book is written for the more empirically informed clinician and others who have a scholarly interest in mood disorders and research design. The important clinical information it contains would best be translated into a psychoeducational mode via psychotherapy, either individual, group, or family, for the majority of mental health consumers. The authors of the chapters have published widely on their topics and draw upon many scholarly references.
Features: The chapters address many psychological aspects of bipolar disorder, including cognitive, interpersonal, and neuropsychological traits and states. There is also an interesting discussion of relapse prevention of affective episodes and a comparison of the wide varieties of treatment modalities. Many of these topics are covered in significant depth and are of great use to the practitioner working with folks and families managing this chronic disorder. The only negative aspect of the book is a fault of its compilation format: there is excessive repetition in terms of diagnostic criteria, symptomology, and other basic information about bipolar disorder from one chapter to the next.
Assessment: This is a unique offering, imparting important scholarly information that is highly useful to the research driven practitioner. Clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and other research trained mental health providers will find it good reading about current treatment and research strategies.
