More About the Dinner Talk

How well do we really understand bipolar disorder?

There are many misconceptions about this mental illness, which is characterized by mood swings ranging from deep depression to periods of mania.

Professor Miklowitz will share updates on the most recent research, illuminating the importance of education for both patients and those closest to them. How do you identify bipolar disorder and when diagnosed how do you treat it? In his talk Professor Miklowitz will survey the latest methods of psychotherapy for bipolar disorder, with a special focus on children and adolescents who are showing early signs of mood disturbance. Join us for this dinner talk where we will learn about some of the most successful strategies for control of bipolar disorder.
