Summary Clinical psychologists Dominic H. Lam, Steven H. Jones, and Peter Hayward, update their 1999 guide to incorporate subsequent literature and their own experience working with bipolar patients using a form of prophylactic psychotherapy in conjunction with medication. The treatment package they describe contains elements from traditional cognitive therapy for depression, but also some elements they have devised for treating the particular difficulties experienced by people with bipolar illness. The early chapters provide readers with a basic knowledge about bipolar disorders, treatments available so far, the psycho-social aspects of bipolar disorders, and their model for psychological intervention. Then they explain the treatment package itself, and how therapists can integrate it into their practice
