Reviews

'I found this book extremely helpful in adding new techniques to my therapeutic armamentarium. I recommend it highly for both the beginning and experienced therapist.' - "Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic" 'Basco and Rush provide an easy-to-follow and flexible set of techniques for treatment of bipolar disorder... For beginning clinicians and practitioners who prefer to work using a more structured approach, a treatment protocol is provided in the Appendix... Vignettes are offered throughout the book to illustrate how to apply the techniques to different types of patients in different stages of the illness.' - "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Book Reviews" 'The best psychoeducational and cognitive-behavioral strategies for helping this population are described and integrated into a coherent framework. The book is full of carefully structured charts, case examples, and patient assignments that will enable clinicians to successfully employ these critically important treatment principles and practices.' - "Robert Morton Post, MD"
