    Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD.
    A survivor of bipolar disorder herself, Dr. Jamison courageously uses her personal struggle to help clients and therapists understand the misconceptions of this lethal illness. In this riveting interview with Victor Yalom, PhD, clinicians will find out not only what bipolar disorder is, but also what causes it, how to make an accurate diagnosis, and how to treat it effectively. Based on extensive research, Jamison presents compelling evidence that this is a progressive illness that requires medical treatment, and that psychotherapy and medication can be life-saving for people with this devastating disease. Considering that bipolar disorder puts one at a greater risk for suicide than any other illness, it is essential that clinicians are thoroughly informed about the nature of this sobering disease. There's no person more qualified to learn about bipolar disorder from than Dr. Jamison.
