For any caregiver experiencing life with a bipolar child, Demitri and Janice Papolos's The Bipolar Child will be an indispensable reference guide. The material is presented clearly, with lots of helpful charts and lists to aid in receiving proper diagnosis, treatment, and long-term care. All medical information is relayed with the aim of helping parents to ensure effective treatment for their children and includes journal-tracking formats to help caregivers provide accurate information to personal physicians. Importantly, many pages are devoted to discussions about the emotional upheavals that living with a bipolar child can bring, and how parents and children can cope most effectively. The book is filled with families' stories that do a beautiful job providing comfort and inspiration to others. A detailed chapter on hospitalization covers everything from insurance to types of treatments. The authors provide excellent information regarding improved educational practices, with step-by-step instructions for goal-setting with your child and communicating your child's needs to school personnel. The Bipolar Child is a satisfying and wise read. --Jill Lightner -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .


Advance Praise for The Bipolar Child:

"Demitri and Janice Papolos have broken important new ground by taking on the challenging problem of bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder in children and adolescents. . . . Their new book balances scientific and clinical knowledge with moving personal accounts of experiences of real families. Their efforts are welcome."
--Ross J. Baldessarini, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience at Harvard Medical School, Director of the Bipolar & Psychotic Disorders Program, McLean Division of Massachusetts General Hospital

"The Bipolar Child is a well-organized, practical, and authoritative book by highly knowledgeable authors. As the first book on this subject it fills a huge void and will be extremely helpful for families
--E. Fuller Torrey, M.D., Executive Director,  The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill Research Institute

"The Papoloses have somehow managed to climb into the minds of the parents of bipolar children and answer our tremendous number of questions. . . . Finally, parents of bipolar children have a book that will help them find hope!"
--S. M. Tomie Burke, Founder, Parents of Bipolar Children and the BPPARENT Listserv

"This book should make the public as well as the field of psychiatry rethink their perceptions of this devastating illness of childhood. It is a book whose time has come."
--Victoria Secunda, author of When Madness Comes Home

"The Bipolar Child will help families understand the out-of-control child. It includes moving, well-written, and sensitive accounts from many families who have experienced early onset of this very disabling disorder. The good news is, however, that there is treatment and it works."
--Laurie Flynn, Executive Director, The National Alliance for the Mentally Ill Research Institute

This book is so long over due. It should be required reading for all health care providers, social workers, psychiatrist, psychologists, counselors, educators, juvenile courts, and anyone else who remotely interacts with children.
I believe that if the above professionals read this book with an open mind, more children would get a better chance at success in life as opposed to life in prison.
It was so eerie yet comforting to hear my childhood nightmares in the pages of this book. I just assumed everyone dreamt in vivid color with graphic details of horror, blood, and died in their dreams as I have. The demonic dreams were especially disturbing to me and now I understand that I am not under attack by satan and that it is just another facet of the disorder I have.
I am now 35 years of age and still must have some type of light to sleep. This book helped me understand myself better as a child and will assist me in understanding my daughter (15), who has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
It is so comforting to understand and be understood. It has allowed me to understand my mother, father, daughter, and self much better. Not only understand, but accept. This book has given me hope for the future stability of my family.
So often, psychiatrist and psychologists tell you what you have, but not what it means to have what you have. So many patients walk away not understanding the nature of the illnesses they live with daily.
I have lived with (bipolar I) my entire life and now, I finally know what it means. I finally know and understand the nature of my illness. This is just wonderful for me and my family.
Thank you soooo much Dr. Demitri and Janice Papolos!

I read this book with some scepticism at first, because I am an old hand at reading "theories" about children and "neurobiological disorders" at this point, and also because I myself am bipolar. I checked first with my psychiatrist to see if in fact this condition really does exist: he affirmed that it does. Apparently, I, like so many other people, am out of date in my knowledge of the existence of early onset bipolar disorder.
As it is critical to your child's well being and future health to get a proper diagnosis of such a serious condition, this book can be very helpful. It contains a list of resources at the end that are worth their weight in gold alone. Furthermore, there are apparently, according to the authors, quite a few misdiagnosed children out there who are being treated with the wrong medications and the sooner they get helped on their way to the correct ones the more stable their health will remain. This is imperative as this disorder must be treated with medication.
This book also addresses the state of the family as a unit; this is vitally important as, when raising any child, you must consider the whole family and the feelings of any one member at any given time. The stress from having a bipolar child is extreme. Suggestions are given that are helpful to ameliorate this.
Always, always, a respect for and an affection for children comes through in this book. As the authors guide you through the confusing maze of terms like "IEP'S", "IDEA", "hypomania",and others, you can be certain that it is being put as clearly as possible. If you aren't ready for some of it at one point, it is waiting for you there when you are.

The ABC 20/20 segment on Bipolar Disorder prompted me to buy "The Bipolar Child" by Papolos et. al. I expected to get the definitive guide, or at least the nearly definitive guide, but I was disappointed. The first two chapters were quite good. There are descriptions of the behaviors that define a child with Bipolar Disorder. Chapter four provides an excellent review of the medications that are used to treat the disorder in children. Chapter six provides a fine review of the genetic aspects of the disorder. So what's missing? There are few practical guidelines to the parent on how to handle misbehavior and how to teach more appropriate behavior. There is little on the parent/child interactions that maintain the behavior. There are suggestions aimed at the teacher. Some are specific, "Provide a classroom seating away from distractions", "Have her sit in the front row". But again, there is little direction about what to do when the child yells, screams, knocks over tables in class. I'm not sure the suggestions given on pages 275 - 278 are enough to be effective. How should the parent and teacher provide consequences for appropriate behavior and for misbehavior? What are the best classroom management systems? Is punishment effective? How do you set up a point system that works? What is a functional analysis of behavior? This whole field of Applied Behavior Analysis is not given enough treatment dispite it's proven effectiveness with Bipolar and other children with behavior disorders. There are answers to the questions above. Parents are advised to look up the works of Marion Forgatch PhD, Gerald Paterson PhD (Parents and Adolescents), Patricia Chamberlain PhD (Success Begins in the Home) and others from the Oregon Social Learning Center.
