Cognitive Therapy is well established as an effective treatment for depression, but Bipolar Disorder presents additional challenges. Mood swings and manic episodes call for more than standard Cognitive Therapy of depression. Recent research has shown that, with appropriate modifications, Cognitive Therapy can be quite effective with Bipolar Disorder. This workshop will presume that participants are familiar with Cognitive Therapy for unipolar depression and will focus specifically on treating Bipolar Disorder. Objectives: Participants will be able to explain current cognitive-behavioral perspectives on Bipolar Disorder and contemporary intervention strategies. They will understand techniques for dealing with manic episodes and mood swings, harm-reduction strategies, relapse-prevention techniques, and principles for combining Cognitive Therapy with medication in the treatment of Bipolar Disorder.
