This much-needed volume gives clinicians essential strategies for managing the complexities of bipolar disorder and tailoring treatment to each patient's changing needs. Highly readable, accessible, and pragmatic, the book provides expert guidance on critically important treatment questions. It addresses which medications to try and at what dosages, what psychosocial interventions are most helpful at different phases of the illness, how to continually monitor and fine-tune treatment to keep patients functioning well, and how to involve family members productively. The authors draw on state-of-the-art research as well as extensive clinical experience as a psychotherapist and a psychopharmacologist. Vivid case material is included throughout. Reproducible questionnaires and forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An excellent guide to the treatment of a complicated, common, and potentially lethal illness. The authors' deep understanding of depression and mania is obvious on every page and their clinical recommendations are sophisticated and practical."--Kay Redfield Jamison, PhD, The Dalio Family Professor in Mood Disorders and Professor of Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine

"Books about bipolar disorder abound, but what makes this one unique is that it clearly conveys that pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy must function as an integral whole. The authors' scholarly track records qualify them as experts, but beyond that, their real qualification is their decades of clinical experience. Two of the main emphases are especially gratifying to me: first, that treatment is a collaboration between doctor and patient, a truism often cited but rarely practiced; and second, that family members are integral to the treatment team. The extensive, well-chosen case examples bring the book alive and will help readers remember the many important clinical points."--Frederick K. Goodwin, MD, Director, Center on Neuroscience, Medical Progress, and Society, George Washington University Medical Center

"This is a marvelously written and practical book on treatment of the individual patient with bipolar disorder. It has many case examples of difficult problems that are commonly encountered, and multiple precise ways to deal with them. A major focus is integrating pharmacotherapy with psychotherapy, psychoeducation, and family involvement in the therapeutic process. If patients are treated according to the principles enumerated in this book, it is clear that they will do very well."--Robert M. Post, MD, Bipolar Collaborative Network, Bethesda, Maryland; Department of Psychiatry, George Washington University

"Miklowitz and Gitlin have teamed up to produce an invaluable volume. This unique book covers essentially everything the clinician needs to know to effectively diagnose and treat bipolar disorder in an integrated and personalized way. The chapters on treatment are particularly notable for distilling the wisdom of these two highly skilled experts into usable strategies and tactics that don't necessarily follow any single model of treatment, but integrate the most effective parts of several models. This is 'must' reading for clinicians who are embarking on the treatment of these challenging patients or who want to update their skills."--Ellen Frank, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Professor of Psychology, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine

"Miklowitz and Gitlin share a wealth of clinical pearls, providing clinicians with a road map for how to best diagnose bipolar disorder and promote mood stabilization and recovery. A great resource for clinicians, students, and the field."--Mark A. Frye, MD, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, Mayo Clinic College of Medicine
