This session will cover defining and treating the complexity of Bipolar Affective Spectrum Disorder. Particular attention will be paid to common misconceptions about the psychiatric condition, how clinicians can become stuck in their treatment approaches, and how creative, brief therapy interventions, including the use of Ericksonian hypnosis, can be utilized to assist in obtaining treatment goals. Using the latest findings in neuroscience, this session will present effective and successful methods to manage and resolve treatment challenges in dealing with this highly misunderstood diagnosis/ psychiatric condition.
