Excellent Free Resource: “Bipolar Disorder in Children and Teens – A Parent’s Guide” E-Book

bipolar_disorder_children_ebook_coverChildren and teens who are diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder often face significant life style adjustments not only for themselves, but for family and friends around them. Medication management, psychological treatments, and other behavioral modifications can be intimidating, frustrating, and difficult to adapt too. The National Institute of Health (NIH) recently released a free evidence based e-book called, “Bipolar Disorder in Children and Teens: A Parent’s Guide,” to help caretakers better understand and cope with their child’s Bipolar Disorder and currently accepted treatment options. This is also a great guide that clinicians can provide to their patients and family.

Bipolar Disorder in Children and Teens: A Parent’s Guide provides a straightforward discussion of the important biopsychosocial foundations and symptoms of this disorder. Other important topics are covered, including frequent co-morbid conditions (e.g., ADHD and anxiety disorders), where to go for help, and crisis management. The e-book also describes the various pharmacotherapies with easy to read summaries of appropriate drugs and their side effects, as well as a brief overview of commonly recommended supportive psychological treatments.

As an additional resource, psychologists who work with patients with Bipolar Disorder may want to read “Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Bipolar Disorder, Second Edition” to better understand the nature of this disorder and the currently available researched-based CBT approaches.
