The International Bipolar Foundation is out with another great webinar. Be sure to check it out!
- Depression Associated With Bipolar Disorder In Youth" With Dr. Melissa DelBello
June 10th, 2015 at 9:00 am PT.
- Treatment options for bipolar depression in youths have been primarily studied in adults. Currently only one medication is approved by the FDA for use in bipolar depression in youths. However, there is a growing number of research on treatment options in youths with bipolar disorder. Despite this, there is still a huge gap in clinical trials performed on adults and children and as this webinar will show, extrapolating results of adult studies doesn't necessarily translate to successful treatment options for youths. Furthermore, although medication is the cornerstone of treatment in children and adolescents with bipolar disorder, we'll discuss how psychosocial interventions are of paramount importance. The current webinar will review the empirical evidence available for both pharmacological and psychosocial treatment strategies for bipolar depression.
