"In this volume, Mark Bauer, a psychiatrist, and Linda McBride, a nurse, present a two-phase treatment program designed to improve both illness self-management skills, as well as social and occupational functioning. Phase 1 is a highly structured, five-session psychoeducational program that involves assisting individuals who suffer from bipolar disorder to become more active in learning about and understanding their own illness with its unique patterns and problems. Phase 2 focuses on helping group members identify meaningful and realistic life goals that have been interrupted by bipolar disorder. Clients are taught to develop a behavioral plan to employ cognitive techniques to maximize their chances for success in achieving these life goals."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
