Depressed, Borderline or Bipolar?

This training event will award 3 contact hours for licensed social workers with the NYSED State Board for Social Work and 3 CASAC renewal credits.*OASAS approval pending*

 

This workshop will provide clinicians with a four-part, clinical diagnostic method to distinguish patients with borderline personality and unipolar depression from those with bipolar illnesses. Clinicians will learn why, despite widespread use, antidepressants, atypical antipsychotics, and Lamictal should not form the foundation of treatment for bipolar illness. Drawing on research from empirically tested individual and family therapies for bipolar disorder and psychodynamic studies on manic-depressive illness, the presenter will discuss the many ways psychotherapists can help patients and families struggling with bipolar disorder.
