Full Description:   

Recent advances in evidence-based treatment of pediatric bipolar disorder are comprehensively reviewed in this authoritative volume. The prominent editors and contributors examine the current status of widely used medications and psychosocial therapies, and explore new horizons in tailoring treatment to individuals' neurobiological and clinical profiles. Chapters on specific populations discuss strategies for addressing common co-occurring disorders in children and adolescents with bipolar disorder, treating preschoolers, targeting bipolar depression, and improving early intervention and prevention. Other essential topics include medication side effects and approaches to monitoring and ameliorating them, and ethical issues related to treatment and research.

"This timely book reflects a range of recent developments in the field. Unique features include the discussions of metabolic considerations; recent advances in pharmacological treatments; and chapters on preschool presentation, early intervention, and ethics that present important perspectives on complex issues. Readers will be pleasantly impressed with the progress and consensus charted in this book."
-Eric Youngstrom, PhD, Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry and Associate Director, Center of Excellence for Research and Treatment of Bipolar Disorder, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
