Psychosocial Interventions for Bipolar Disorder: A Review of Recent Research
T.H. Richardson

Abstract:
Bipolar disorder is an affective disorder characterised by mood episodes which can cause considerable impairment in everyday life. This study outlines recent research on psychosocial interventions for this illness, focusing on psychoeducation, interpersonal and social rhythm therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy and family focused treatments. The basic components of these interventions are discussed along with evidence for effectiveness and an examination of possible limitations. The current research suggests there are a number of different psychosocial interventions which appear to be effective for reducing relapse, alleviating affective symptoms and improving functioning. However, the evidence base for some of these is relatively limited at present.
