    Conference Description: Bipolar disorder is a chronic, recurring, serious, and potentially life-threatening disease. If left untreated, episodes are likely to grow more severe and resistant to treatment. It also is one of the leading causes of disability and early death in the U.S.A., and not just because of its strong connection with suicide. It is also one of the most commonly undetected or misdiagnosed conditions in mental health, with years passing between when the illness causes problems versus getting appropriate treatment. For all of these reasons, it is vital to accurately recognize and know how to treat bipolar disorder. There are now more than 9600 articles on bipolar disorders in children and adolescents, with more than 90% published in the last 15 years. This explosion of evidence arrived after most practitioners finished their training and obtained licensure.

    This workshop summarizes the literature, using expert review and meta-analyses, focusing on clinical implications about the presentation in youths, practical evidence-based assessment tools, differential diagnosis, and how to select effective treatment options. The workshop uses a case-centered approach to illustrate how the information changes clinical practice.


    Eric Youngstrom, Ph.D., is a professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, and Psychiatry, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he is also the Acting Director of the Center for Excellence in Research and Treatment of Bipolar Disorder. He is the first recipient of the Early Career Award from the Division of Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology, and is an elected full member of the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology. He has consulted on the 5th Revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) and the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11). He chairs the Work Group on Child Diagnosis for the International Society for Bipolar Disorders.

    He has served as the Director of the Data Management and Statistical Analysis Unit and Research Methods Core of the Center for Research in Bipolar Disorder across the Life Cycle. Read full bio HERE.
