This program will provide a comprehensive overview of pediatric bipolar disorder. Using current research and clinical understanding, the program will review common clinical features of this disorder in youth and how these may differ from those of adults. The program will also discuss comorbidity with other childhood disorders and the importance of differential diagnosis. It will review known risk factors for the development of this condition, knowledge about the course and trajectory of mood symptoms in youth. Finally, the program will focus on best practices for treating bipolar disorder in youth and review the current literature on the efficacy of existing psychopharmacologic and psychosocial treatments. Limitations of the current knowledge base and areas for future research will be discussed.
