Based on the highly successful, evidence-based Barcelona program, this book is a pragmatic, therapists'' guide for how to implement psychoeducation for bipolar patients. It gives practical guidance for how to conduct a psychoeducation group, using sessions and cases drawn from the Barcelona Psychoeducation Program.
