Book News
Basco wrote the workbook as a supplement for people who were participating in cognitive-behavioral therapy for bipolar I disorder in addition to medication treatment, but found that the first edition was used by clinicians, educators, family members, and people who suffered from mood swings of other types. Reflecting current thinking, this second edition is no longer organized around stages of the disorder, but around symptoms caused by a spectrum of disorders that share several common features. She says that people who can benefit from the book have a pattern of episodes or periods during which symptoms start, reach a peak, then begin to taper off.
