The Bipolar Workbook
Leading expert Dr. Monica Ramirez Basco helps you understand the nature of bipolar illness and recognise the early warning signs of mood swings. Step-by-step exercises (you can download and print additional copies of the forms as needed) give you greater insight into your own triggers, vulnerabilities, and strengths. Dr. Basco guides you to build the particular skills you need to withstand the pull of manic episodes and escape the paralysis of depression. There are clear and helpful chapters on key strategies for managing stress, making healthy decisions, and solving problems. Vivid stories and examples illustrate how to put the techniques into action. This is a great book for someone new to diagnosis and to assist with formulating your own treatment management plan.
