Trends in Bipolar Disorder Research Book Review:

This new volume gathers important research developments dealing with bipolar disorders. In a world permeated with stress, bipolar disorders have become an all too common occurrence. There are millions of people throughout the world suffering from this disorder. Bipolar disorder, also known as manic-depressive illness, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in a person's mood, energy, and ability to function. Different from the normal ups and downs, the symptoms of bipolar disorder are severe. They can result in damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and even suicide. The primary psychological factor implicated in the manifestation of bipolar disorder is stressful life events. These can range from a death in the family to the loss of a job, from the birth of a child to a move. Once the disorder is triggered and progresses, 'it seems to develop a life of its own'. The two poles of bipolar disorder are mania and depression.

Pediatric Bipolar Disorder Book Review:

Despite the fact that much evidence exists to prove that bipolar disorder effects a large amount of children, during the past century doctors have been very reluctant to diagnose bipolar disorder (BPD) before adulthood. In contemporary times, the bias against diagnosing bipolar disorder in youth has been perpetuated by the lack of agreed upon diagnostic criteria that accurately characterise the condition as it typically exists in childhood. As observed by a number of contributors to this volume, this bias extended to birth cohort studies around the world in that instruments designed to detect mania or bipolar disorder were almost never or rarely applied. In the US, the continued use of unmodified DSM-IV criteria to diagnose prepubertal-onset BPD has only recently been tempered by the knowledge that these criteria were developed based solely on observations in adult studies. While the diagnosis of bipolar disorder in childhood still remains the subject of some controversy, today, thankfully, the controversy has shifted from a debate about whether it can be diagnosed to how it is diagnosed. There is now a general consensus among clinicians and researchers all over the world that bipolar disorder does exist in youth and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality; however, the developmental continuity of prepubertal mania with adult bipolar disorder remains yet undetermined and we know very little and are still in great need to learn more about epidemiology, etiology, phenomenology, and treatment of this condition., This book aims to give the first glimpse of the current state of knowledge about paediatric bipolar disorder from around the world and provides an in-depth view of both the differences and the similarities in diagnosis, comorbidity, clinical and research concepts and treatment approaches of colleagues from different parts of the world as well as serves as a source for the historical development of child and adolescent psychiatry, and for the epidemiology of some frequently seen childhood disorders in various countries.

Bipolar Disorder in Later Life Book Review:

This comprehensive volume is the first to offer guidance to clinicians and researchers treating or studying bipolar disorder in older adults. Growing numbers of elderly people are affected by this serious mental illness. Presenting the most recent information, experts in the fields of bipolar disorder, geriatrics, and mental health services research cover late-life bipolar disorder in four major domains: epidemiology and assessment, treatment, complexity and comorbidity, and specialized care delivery. Revealing the effect of the aging process on the disease, they address diagnosis patterns over the life course, rating scales of assessment, pharmacologic and psychological therapies, adherence to treatment, effects of cultural factors, assessing the quality of care, and legal and ethical issues. An important tool for clinicians, this book will serve as a springboard for further research into this complex disorder. -- Grace Wong

Practical Management of Bipolar Disorder Book Review:

Bipolar disorder, or manic depression, is characterised by episodes of pathological mood states. The two poles are mania (with a predominant elated or irritable mood) and depression (with feelings of sadness, anxiety, guilt or hopelessness) but mixed states frequently occur. Episodes can last for many months and profoundly affect physical health, relationships and careers. Since diagnosis and management are difficult, this practical guide provides an overview of the disorder and detailed guidelines for treating the illness throughout its stages, from authors internationally renowned for their work in bipolar disorder. Also discussed are disease theories, mechanisms and key clinical trials, as well as chapters devoted to psychosocial treatments, substance misuse and insights from 'lived experience'. In-depth analyses of selected population groups, including youth, the elderly and women, complement guidelines for clinical approaches in managing bipolar disorder. Comprehensive and detailed, this guide will prove invaluable to clinicians, general practitioners, psychiatrists and psychologists.
