This volume provides a state-of-the-science review of current knowledge on bipolar disorder in children.

Leading clinical researchers address such topics as epidemiology, diagnosis and assessment, comorbidity, and outcomes. A range of different treatment approaches are described and evaluated, including pharmacotherapy, psychotherapy, and family-based psychoeducation and support. Compelling findings are also presented on the neurobiological and genetic bases of the disorder.
