From a leading child psychiatrist, here is a comprehensive parents' guide to understanding - and managing - paediatric bipolar disorder.Once considered an adult illness, bipolar disorder (manic depression) is the fastest growing category in child psychiatry since ADHD. But often it goes misdiagnosed, and children can be prescribed medication that only worsens the condition. Parents are desperate for someone to guide the way through this difficult time. With her twenty-five years of clinical experience, child psychiatrist Rosalie Greenberg offers families a lifeline - a book filled with sage, practical and reassuring advice for anyone struggling to help a child locate that elusive inner calm.With a revolutionary approach that sees the brilliance, the sweetness, the creativity in these kids, Dr Greenberg gathers their stories, as well as their parents' stories, to open a window onto these children who have for so long gone misunderstood. She walks readers through the different scenarios that may occur with bipolar kids, from daring manic phases to sudden periods of overwhelming sadness. She spells out the "whys" behind the condition; shows parents how best to navigate the peaks and valleys of bipolar; and provides parents with the assurance that they need not tackle this illness alone. Most important, she encourages adults to listen to what children say through the maze of their mania and depression, for this can make all the difference in diagnosing and successfully managing bipolar."Bipolar Kids" offers parents welcome understanding, guidance, and, most of all, hope that every child can - and should - lead a full, productive and contented life.
