About the Course:

This course is based on an innovative manual that presents a powerful approach for helping people manage bipolar illness and protect against the recurrence of manic or depressive episodes. Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy focuses on stabilizing moods by improving medication adherence, building coping skills and relationship satisfaction, and shoring up the regularity of daily rhythms or routines. Each phase of this flexible, evidence-based treatment is vividly detailed, from screening, assessment, and case conceptualization through acute therapy, maintenance treatment, and periodic booster sessions. Among the special features are reproducible assessment tools and a chapter on how to overcome specific treatment challenges.

This course is based on the book, Treating Bipolar Disorder: A Clinician’s Guide to Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy created by Frank, Ellen, PhD

Journal/Publisher:

Guilford Press
