A Psychoeducational Approach to Family Therapy: Comparing 3 Models

The Balanced Mind Parent Network is committed to providing parents with current information about treatments and resources that have a proven track record of success.  To learn more we sat down individually with three leading clinicians who are pioneering the charge to include your entire family in therapy.  While the approaches differ in some important respects, they all share the common goal of working with kids with bipolar disorder in an inclusive family context.  Learning about these approaches to therapy will provide parents with the information they need to seek the treatment approach that best suites the needs of their child and their family.

Thank you! Perhaps you could start out by talking a little about your new book “The Bipolar Teen”?

David Miklowitz PhD
Sure - we just published a new book called "The Bipolar Teen." This book is intended for parents of the 12-18 set who are often struggling not only with the disorder but trying to distinguish being a teen from being a bipolar teen. The book focuses on coping strategies, especially those to use when a kid is cycling into mania or depression
