Description

Why is Your Patient Still Unstable & Depressed?

Patients with symptoms of both mood and personality disorders, or with histories of substance abuse, present unique diagnostic and treatment challenges. A recent study by the National Institutes of Mental Health found that nearly 40% of patients with symptoms of major depressive disorder actually had bipolar disorder. These patients are often mistakenly treated for years with antidepressants and non-specific or ineffective forms of psychotherapy or counseling. Antidepressants have been shown to be no more effective than mood stabilizing medications alone for preventing depression in bipolar patients, and can actually destabilize the course of their illness. This recording provides clinicians with a 4-part, clinical diagnostic method to distinguish patients with personality disorders and unipolar depression from those with bipolar disorders.

Drawing on empirically tested research and psychodynamic studies, Dr. Carter will discuss the many ways psychotherapists can help patients and families struggling with bipolar disorder. Learn why antidepressants and atypical antipsychotics should not form the foundation of treatment for bipolar illness. This recording discusses potent, non-drug treatments for depression, mania, and rapid-cycling that can be put to immediate use.
