Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Bipolar Disorder

Synopsis

"Restructured to be even more useful to real-world clinicians, the revised and expanded second edition of this acclaimed guide offers proven strategies for improving the long-term outcomes and quality of life of people with bipolar illness. The expert authors draw on extensive research and frontline experience to provide a complete framework for individualized cognitive-behavioral treatment. Filled with illustrative case material, the book is carefully designed to address the complexities of treating this challenging, chronic disorder. In the second edition, a new, more flexible assessment and treatment model replaces the original 20-session protocol (which is now included in the Appendix). This new structure facilitates effective intervention with patients with broadly varying histories and clinical presentations, including those who have been recently diagnosed, those who are symptomatically stable, and those who struggle day to day to achieve symptom remission. Provided are clear recommendations for conceptualizing individual patients' needs and working collaboratively to help them." Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
