    "More than 10 million people in the United States suffer from bipolar disorder. Helping these patients manage their symptoms can be challenging. This therapist guide outlines a scientifically based and proven effective program for treating bipolar patients." "Treatment is divided into four phases and focuses on helping the patient alleviate depressive episodes, form a support system of family and friends, focus on the most relevant problems outside of the disorder, and improve well-being. The program is based on the principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and includes such skills as cognitive restructuring, problem solving, mood charting, and activity scheduling. Designed to be used in conjunction with medication, the goal of this program is not to cure the disorder, but to help the patient stabilize mood and plan for those times when symptoms exacerbate. This is accomplished through the creation of a Treatment Contract that informs the patient's treatment team and support network how to recognize possible periods of illness and the strategies they should use in order to help the patient during these times." "Complete with step-by-step instructions for running sessions, as well as lists of materials needed, session outlines, and copies of forms necessary for treatment, this therapist guide provides you with all the information you need to help your bipolar patients successfully manage the disorder."--Jacket.
