Abstract

Research suggests that cognitive behavioral therapy for bipolar disorder can be a powerful adjunctive intervention for the treatment of bipolar disorder. This chapter provides a discussion of the empirical status of cognitive behavioral therapy for bipolar disorder, and an overview of intervention strategies and clinical issues unique to this patient group. Important treatment elements described here include psychoeducation, medication adherence strategies, mood monitoring and early intervention for mood episodes, cognitive restructuring, and lifestyle and stress management techniques.
