Grounded in current knowledge about bipolar disorder and its treatment, this book presents an empirically supported therapy program with step-by-step guidelines for implementation. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) for bipolar disorder is specifically designed for clients who have experienced many mood episodes and who struggle with chronic, pervasive depressive and residual manic symptoms. The authors provide everything needed to conduct the 12 weekly group sessions, which are supplemented by regular individual sessions. Reproducible tools include 29 client handouts and an Instructor Checklist. Purchasers get access to a companion website featuring downloadable audio recordings of the guided mindfulness practices (meditations and mindful movement), plus the reproducible materials, ready to download and print in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size. A separate website for use by clients features the audio recordings only.

She was previously a Research Fellow in the Psychiatric Neuroscience Division at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School.

Review:

"Few diagnoses tax sufferers and stymie therapists as greatly as bipolar disorder. Designed around a vital core of mindfulness practices for addressing mood lability, reactivity, and blunting, this innovative treatment meaningfully expands our understanding of comprehensive care for this challenging clinical condition."--Zindel V. Segal, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Mood Disorders, University of Toronto-Scarborough, Canada

"Written in a clear and practical fashion by a highly respected team of experts, this outstanding book provides innovative mindfulness tools for the treatment of bipolar disorder. Clinicians will learn how to expand their repertoire of therapeutic skills to more effectively treat this challenging disorder. Numerous patient worksheets and handouts are included and session content is described in careful detail. I wholeheartedly recommend this excellent book."--Noreen A. Reilly-Harrington, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, Bipolar Clinic and Research Program, Massachusetts General Hospital

"Finally, a book that addresses the application of mindfulness strategies to bipolar disorder. The authors have used their considerable clinical and research expertise to adapt MBCT to the management of fluctuating mood states. The reader will come away with confidence that mindfulness practice is a critical component of the self-management of bipolar disorder. Well worth the read."--David J. Miklowitz, PhD, Department of Psychiatry, UCLA School of Medicine, Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior, and Senior Clinical Researcher at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom

"Mindfulness has been shown to produce numerous benefits as an adjunct to treatment for many medical and psychiatric disorders. At the same time, multiple studies have demonstrated the importance of behavioral treatments for patients with bipolar disorder. This useful and timely book provides what clinicians want from a manual: it describes how and why to conduct the treatment, as well as how to modify it as needed for specific clinical circumstances. This book is sure to help many clinicians treat patients with bipolar disorder."--Roger D. Weiss, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Chief, Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse, McLean Hospital

“This very useful book is a valuable resource for therapists and trainees who work with patients who have bipolar disorder. It contains everything needed to implement this therapeutic approach, and it is written in a style that is easily understood. This therapeutic intervention is a refreshing addition to the medications that are the usual primary approach for treating bipolar disorder. It is highly recommended.” (Journal of Clinical Psychiatry 2015-09-01)

“[A] thoughtfully written, clinically rich, and comprehensive treatment guide....A welcome addition to efforts to develop novel strategies to improve care for people with bipolar disorder. The book includes detailed information about the nature of bipolar disorder, and the authors are credited for emphasizing the importance of viewing mindfulness-based cognitive therapy within a broader context of care, including pharmacological management....A compelling guide for future study.”
(American Journal of Psychiatry 2015-07-01)

“This is the first book to describe how to provide MBCT for patients with bipolar disorder, and it will be a landmark. The authors focus on coping tools to manage depression, mania, anxiety, and anger. They slowly introduce and build on mindfulness skills, reinforce the relevance of daily practice, and provide guidance on how to help participants overcome obstacles to practice. This book will provide a basis for future research and practice involving MBCT for bipolar disorder....This manual is recommended for psychiatrists, psychologists, psychiatry residents, psychology students, social workers, and counselors.”
(Journal of Psychiatric Practice 2015-11-01)
