Book Description

When your child or adolescent is diagnosed with bipolar disorder, what can you do to help him or her get better? Which therapeutic approach is best to help your child? In this book, a psychiatrist and a psychologist, both specializing in mood disorders, offer a comprehensive overview of the available treatment options and most effective parenting strategies you can use to deal with this condition. In addition to finding a thorough explanation of the often necessary medical treatments for bipolar disorder, you'll learn the importance of emotion regulation for children with this condition. The book offers techniques for dealing with outbursts of rage, anger, and irritability in your child, as well as ways to handle sleep disorders, among the most common symptoms of childhood bipolar disorder. You'll also find information relevant to adolescents, such as substance abuse and eating disorders, as well as ways to integrate bipolar care with your own needs and those of the rest of your family.
