Packed with ready-to-use clinical tools, this book presents the first evidence-based psychosocial treatment for school-age children with bipolar disorder or depression. Leading clinician/researcher Mary Fristad and her colleagues show how to integrate psychoeducational strategies with cognitive-behavioral and family therapy techniques.
