Bipolar and Related Disorders

 

The diagnosis of bipolar and related disorders can be difficult. Treatment is often challenging. This course will help you recognize the symptoms, differentiate between the types of bipolar and related disorders, and give you up-to-date information on medications and psychosocial interventions. You will review research to help you understand the role of genetics in this disorder. You will be able to better understand client behavior, and improve your ability to work with this population. A series of interactive vignettes will help guide you through this course. While children and adolescents have symptoms that are similar to bipolar disorder and in fact may have the disorder, the average age of onset is in late adolescence or young adulthood. This course does not present information on clinical practice for children and adolescents with bipolar disorder but instead focuses on adult onset diagnosis, clinical pathways, and treatment. Diagnostic criteria presented in the course is based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition™. DSM™ and DSM-5™ are registered trademarks of the American Psychiatric Association. The American Psychiatric Association is not affiliated with nor endorses this course. This module is text-based.
