“A truly practical resource grounded in a real-world context....A comprehensive guide to the treatment of bipolar disorder from the CBT framework, and which would serve any therapist extremely well in a multitude of settings, both psychological and in more medically oriented multidisciplinary teams. As a resource for therapists specializing in bipolar disorder, or for those wondering how to apply their CBT skills to symptoms of depression and mania, this would be a valuable addition to any bookshelf.”

Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy

“I found this book extremely helpful in adding new techniques to my therapeutic armamentarium. I recommend it highly for both the beginning and experienced therapist.”

Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic

“Basco and Rush provide an easy-to-follow and flexible set of techniques for treatment of bipolar disorder....For beginning clinicians and practitioners who prefer to work using a more structured approach, a treatment protocol is provided in the Appendix....Vignettes are offered throughout the book to illustrate how to apply the techniques to different types of patients in different stages of the illness.”

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews

“Since it is now clear that optimal treatment for the majority of individuals with bipolar disorder requires an approach that integrates pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy, it is reassuring to see this revised, updated manual for one of the key psychotherapeutic modalities. As always, Basco and Rush write with extreme clarity. Readers will benefit from their collective wisdom about ways to intervene in this challenging disorder.”

“A thoughtful, readable, and very useful volume. The authors' coverage of issues of compliance and adherence in therapy is comprehensive and compelling, providing a sound basis for preventing relapse. What makes the second edition unique is that the format allows clinicians to apply recommended treatment approaches during different phases of the illness, with patients from the newly diagnosed to those in sustained remission. This book will serve as a useful resource for graduate students as well as more experienced clinicians.”

—Edward Altman, PsyD, Department of Psychiatry (Retired), University of Illinois at Chicago

“The second edition of this definitive work is even more useful than its predecessor. Focusing on techniques for patients at different stages of their illness and acceptance, this is a 'must' for all clinicians treating bipolar disorder. The best psychoeducational and cognitive-behavioral strategies for helping this population are described and integrated into a coherent framework. The book is full of carefully structured charts, case examples, and patient assignments that will enable clinicians to successfully employ these critically important treatment principles and practices.”

—Robert Morton Post, MD, Biological Psychiatry Branch, National Institute of Mental Health

“Two experts, including John Rush, one of the pioneers in CBT, have made an excellent book even better....This text is more user-friendly, and has extensive illustrative case material and descriptions of strategic (goal-focused) and technical interventions. The authors take the clinician through the course of the illness and recommend particular interventions for each stage or clinical manifestation of bipolar disorder. For the clinician and teacher of clinical issues, this should be a required text.”
