“A timely contribution given the considerable and relatively recent progress that has been made in this field....A key resource, containing a wealth of information on a burgeoning area. It is practical with generous use of summary tables. Despite being a multi-authored volume there is no compromise to the quality, scholarliness or coherence of the chapters.”

Psychological Medicine


“This comprehensive presentation on all aspects of bipolar disorder is certainly a landmark. Authorities in each of the domains provide detailed descriptions of diagnostic and assessment issues, ways to integrate psychosocial and pharmacological treatments, and approaches to such specific problem areas as noncompliance and suicidality. This volume is a 'must read' for all professionals charged with diagnosing and/or treating patients with bipolar disorder.”

—Aaron T. Beck, MD, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine


“During the past 10 years it has become increasingly clear that, for many sufferers, bipolar affective disorder is a chronic and disabling illness whose devastating impact on quality of life approaches that of schizophrenia. For these patients, treatment plans limited to medical management are often inadequate and fail to address critical psychosocial processes that can either promote or interfere with recovery. This excellent volume brings together in one concise source the psychosocial therapies that have been developed for use with this population. The psychoeducational, cognitive, behavioral, family, and interpersonal approaches described herein represent the state of the art in evidence-based psychotherapies that can complement, not detract from, the effects of pharmacotherapy for bipolar illness.”

—Michael Thase, MD, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center


“This is an up-to-date, outstanding, and comprehensive book on psychological treatments for bipolar disorder. All of the contributors are experts in the field and they have been generous in sharing their knowledge. A broad range of topics are covered, from defining and diagnosing the disorder to implementing a variety of different treatments. Appendices contain useful scales and recommended books for consumers and their families. Mental health professionals and students across the mental health disciplines will find this book an invaluable source of information, and it is a ‘must have' for medical and academic libraries.”

—Dominic Lam, PhD, Department of Psychology, Institute of Psychiatry, King's College London, UK
