From leading scientist-practitioners, this volume presents a range of effective psychosocial approaches for enhancing medication adherence and improving long-term outcomes in adults and children with bipolar illness. Authors review the conceptual and empirical bases of their respective modalities—including cognitive, family-focused, group, and interpersonal and social rhythm therapies—and provide clear descriptions of therapeutic procedures. Separate chapters address assessment and diagnosis, analyze available outcome data, and provide guidance on managing suicidality. Offering a framework for clinical understanding, and yet packed with readily applicable insights and tools, this is a state-of-the-science resource for students and practitioners.
