Bipolar II and Bipolar Related Disorders: More Thank You Ever Wanted to Know (2 CE Hours - APA)

Presented by: Aynne Henry, Ph.D.

Location: Administration – 3450 N. 3rd Street, Phoenix 85012

Description:  This presentation will examine the diagnostic characteristics present in Bipolar and Bipolar Related disorders. Clinicians and researchers regularly debate whether, today, Bipolar Disorder is over or under diagnosed; there is no debate, however, that the disorder is generally poorly understood. When a client with a bipolar disorder presents with elation and excess energy, it is generally quite easy to make a correct diagnosis. Bipolar II or bipolar spectrum clients tend to experience symptoms of depression, irritability, anxiety, attention problems, substance and behavioral addictions which may vary and are much more difficult to diagnose. Their diagnoses are, unfortunately missed for years. It may take ten to fifteen years to arrive at a correct diagnosis and one out of three may never receive medication that is specific and effective for their disorder. When not suffering from symptoms, these clients may be the successful, professionally employed and the “go getters” of our society.
