C106.4 – Bipolar Disorder: A Cognitive Therapy Approach in Clinical Practice (Intermediate Level for All)
Cognitive Therapy (CT) helps bipolar patients to recognize the differences between normal good moods and the early warning signs of mania.

The goal of CT is to help patients reduce subjective levels of stress, thereby reducing the probability of frequent reactivations of the bipolar disorder symptoms. The course will also help patients take a constructive approach to dealing with the use of medications as an adjunct to therapy, staying fully aware of the pros and cons of various medications, and making peace with their necessity. Successful completion of this course will earn 4 Social Work Continuing Education contact hours.
