Are You Struggling With Bipolar Disorder?

Home » Areas of Specialty » Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar Disorder (BD) is a mood disorder that causes episodes of depression and mania at various points. It can be severely debilitating to a person’s work, social, and personal life. Manic episodes may also include risky behavior, such as spending large sums of money, sexual activity, and drug use.

Available Treatment Options

Therapist interventions for Bipolar Disorder aim to address problematic behaviors resulting from the disorder, either by behavioral or cognitive interventions or by examining past trauma or experiences that may have exacerbated the condition. Therapists often advise people with BD to get on a medical regimen that helps regulate mood swings.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can change behavior and alter unhelpful thought patterns. Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy (IPSRT) works to increase adherence to medication regimens, help people with BD handle stressful experiences, and improve relationships.
