  • Makes a significant contribution to the field by facilitating school practitioners' efforts to identify, assess, and treat bipolar disorder in students
  • Focuses directly on the challenges facing busy school-based mental health professionals
  • Includes concise statistics of key research findings and valuable guidance on how to apply them efficiently and effectively

Identifying, Assessing, and Treating Bipolar Disorder at School presents child and education practitioners with an evidence-based framework for accurate identification, assessment, and intervention of bipolar disorder. This straightforward resource clears up misconceptions about the condition, and outlines its complex presentation in young people, where it may appear in tandem with other disorders and bring challenges to treatment. By providing information to assist in referrals, consultations, and recommendations for special education, the authors give the reader a unique vantage point for improving students' learning environment and helping to facilitate the work of fellow professionals.

Among the topics:

  • Prevalence and associated conditions.
  • Case finding, screening, and referrals.
  • Diagnostic and psycho-educational assessment
  • Treatment of bipolar disorder in children and adolescents.
  • Plus suggested resources to assist students and their families.

Identifying, Assessing, and Treating Bipolar Disorder at School is an essential reference for school psychologists and allied educational professionals, special education teachers, speech and language therapists, counselors, clinical child psychologists, and mental health practitioners.
