Bipolar disorder in youths has been controversial. This intermediate workshop updates key issues, including: DSM-5 changes to mood disorder criteria, whether bipolar appears differently in children versus adults, rates of bipolar in different settings, what issues make accurate diagnosis especially challenging, how to use specialized measures to diagnose bipolar more accurately, and how to use emotion-regulation and other techniques to treat pediatric bipolar disorder. Updated content includes new measures and norms, longitudinal findings and treatment implications of mania versus depression.
Learning Objectives
1. Identify similarities and differences between the typical presentation of bipolar disorder in children and the classic adult presentation.
2. Recognize which symptoms and risk factors are helpful in recognizing bipolar disorder and which may be "red herrings."
3. Apply assessment procedures to aid in differential diagnosis and measuring treatment response.
4. Comprehend rates at which bipolar disorder might be occurring in children and adolescents in different settings, such as public schools, outpatient services, forensic settings, and inpatient units.
5. Apply new methods for interpreting test results, including methods that take into account the clinical settings in which participants work.
6. Identify similarities and differences in the framework for applying cognitive behavioral techniques with adolescents who have bipolar disorder versus unipolar depression or DMDD.
7. Recognize specific techniques that can be used in session with adolescents with bipolar disorder.
