Assessment & Psychological Treatment of Bipolar Disorder
A survivor of bipolar disorder herself, Dr. Jamison courageously uses her personal struggle to help clients and therapists understand the misconceptions of this lethal illness. In this riveting interview with Victor Yalom, PhD, clinicians will find out not only what bipolar disorder is, but also what causes it, how to make an accurate diagnosis, and how to treat it effectively. Based on extensive research, Jamison presents compelling evidence that this is a progressive illness that requires medical treatment, and that psychotherapy and medication can be life-saving for people with this devastating disease.

Considering that bipolar disorder puts one at a greater risk for suicide than any other illness, it is essential that clinicians are thoroughly informed about the nature of this sobering disease. There’s no person more qualified to learn about bipolar disorder from than Dr. Jamison.

"An excellent inner and outer sense of the Bipolar Illness by Kay Jamison, PhD, clinician, researcher and first hand experiencer of the condition. Lucid, succinct, and compassionate with enough information for the clinician and enough fundamentals for anyone who is struggling with this disease."
 - David S. May, MD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine

"This quality interview with the notable Kay Redfield Jamison gives a succinct, direct, scholarly overview and update of bipolar disease from her compassionate and informed personal and professional experience. She views psychotherapy as essential in the treatment protocol because of its life-saving ability and she makes valuable suggestions for psychotherapists to incorporate into their practices.  Psychotherapists who want to continue to be well informed in their field will find this interview imperative as Dr. Jamison stresses the need for psychotherapist to deeply understand the disease, the need for family involvement, and the essential need for medication and psychotherapy to keep the illness in check."    
 - Carolyn H. Bray, PhD, Clinical Psychologist, San Francisco and Marin County

"This video would be an excellent resource for advanced undergraduates, who would benefit from Jamison’s review of the science behind the disorder and its treatment, and for graduate students, who would benefit from her integration of disorder-specific recommendations for treatment with the transtheoretical elements common to all effective therapy. Clinicians new to the treatment of bipolar disorder would also find some very specific and helpful recommendations about how to minimize the risk for suicide in this population."
 - Joseph J. Guido, reviewed in APA PsycCRITIQUES

"
Extremely informative… will help educate professionals to minimize the complex sequelae of bipolar disorder, and to enhance quality of care. This video will be of value to all clinicians, but especially to those in an educational setting. The enclosed Instructor’s Manual takes it a helpful step further by offering diagnostic criteria and classroom activities that can enhance the learning process."
 - Roxanna Erickson Klein, PhD, reviewed in The Milton H Erickson Foundation Newsletter

By watching this video, you will:

• Learn how to recognize the symptoms of bipolar disorder and how to make an accurate diagnosis.
• Develop an understanding of how to talk to clients with Bipolar Disorder about medication compliance.
• Gain essential information about the critical tasks for therapists treating clients with Bipolar Disorder.

Too many therapists are under-informed about bipolar disorder and are treating clients without crucial knowledge. Don’t risk a malpractice suit—get informed by watching this illuminating interview and learning how to best help your clients who are suffering from this devastating disease. If you are skeptical of the idea that bipolar disorder is a biologically based condition (and you certainly have reason to be skeptical, given the push by big pharma and other forces to medicalize mental health), then I think you'll be enlightened by the evidence that Jamison presents. This video really provides very practical advice as well as sober warnings for you to become more informed about effective treatment for this condition.
