“This is an eminently readable book, appropriate for people living with bipolar disorder, their families and loved ones, and for clinicians who want to better understand the illness' impact on families and engage them in treatment....Dr. Miklowitz is meticulous about providing examples of the specific interventions as well as providing suggestions for adapting the intervention techniques to different settings and special populations.”

Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal


“The second edition of Bipolar Disorder, like the first, is a major contribution to the understanding of a common, complex, painful, and too often lethal illness. Miklowitz, one of the world's leaders in the study of psychotherapeutic treatments of bipolar illness, presents clinical and research findings in a way that will be invaluable to clinicians.”

—Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine


“Among the first to embrace the idea that psychosocial interventions might be of value to those who suffer from bipolar disorder, Miklowitz continues to be a leader in the field. The second edition of Bipolar Disorder represents yet another valuable contribution to clinical practice and research. Miklowitz has added new evidence for the effectiveness of family-focused treatment for adults from a series of recently published studies. He has also added rich new material on childhood bipolar disorder and how it emerges over time within the family context, as well as more clinical material on applications for adolescents with bipolar disorder and their families. Essential reading for anyone interested in the treatment of bipolar disorder.”

—Ellen Frank, PhD, Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic


“This timely second edition is most welcome. Miklowitz and his colleagues have significantly advanced the field of integrated treatment for bipolar disorder. The empirical basis for a family-focused approach is now well established, and we can safely apply these treatment strategies to new populations, such as adolescents with bipolar disorder. This book will appeal to any mental health professional who wants to learn how to deliver family-focused treatment successfully.”

—David J. Kupfer, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine
