?This book is a helpful treatment manual of cognitive behavioural therapy for BD patients written for professionals. It provides a basic knowledge of BD, including the latest studies. The book offers easy-to-follow guidance and illustrates the process of the therapy with many case examples.? (European Journal of Mental Health, 1 November 2012) "Clinical psychologists Lam (U. of Hull), Steven H. Jones (U. of Lancaster), and Peter Hayward, in private practice, update their 1999 guide to incorporate subsequent literature and their own experience working with bipolar patients using a form of prophylactic psychotherapy in conjunction with medication. The treatment package they describe contains elements from traditional cognitive therapy for depression, but also some elements they have devised for treating the particular difficulties experienced by people with bipolar illness. The early chapters provide readers with a basic knowledge about bipolar disorders, treatments available so far, the psycho-social aspects of bipolar disorders, and their model for psychological intervention. Then they explain the treatment package itself, and how therapists can integrate it into their practice." (Reference and Research Book News, February 2011)
