In this broad overview for students and professionals in psychiatry, medicine, and the helping professions, international contributors explain the features of Bipolar II and give details on clinical management. Quotes from patients provide insight on the patient's experience. Early chapters discuss issues related to defining and measuring Bipolar II and review the disorder's epidemiology and economic burden. The neurobiology of Bipolar II is explained and reasons for the increase in prevalence of Bipolar II are presented. Later chapters detail the role of antidepressants, mood stabilizers, atypical antipsychotics, and fish oil in managing Bipolar II. There is also material on psychological interventions. The last section of the book presents two models of clinical management, followed by comments from 14 contributors, examining the merits and drawbacks of each model. This second edition contains new chapters on comorbidity, over-represented personality styles, the trajectory of the disorder, and distinguishing Bipolar II from personality disorders. Parker teaches psychiatry at the University of New South Wales, Australia. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
