Bipolar Disorder: Early Diagnosis to Remission and Recovery
2321 Whitney Ave #401
In this course, learn both the basics of diagnosis and treatment of bipolar disorder. This will also include a more in-depth exploration of those with co-occurring substance use and how to structure treatment for those with multiple co-morbidities such as psychiatric, substance abuse, medical, or psychosocial.
This program relies heavily on established paradigms and diagnostic criteria and also incorporates emerging approaches to working with complex individuals. Bipolar disorder has the highest suicide rate of all mental disorders and a high 50-70% lifetime prevalence of substance use disorders (SUDs). Both a module on suicide assessment and teaching on how to implement dual-diagnosis treatment are included to address this. Discover complex diagnostic dilemmas, age, and gender-specific topics so you can work with individuals with bipolar disorder.
