John Baker, J. A. Baker

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This paper aims to review current literature around bipolar disorder from a multidisciplinary stance. As a result of a literature search, several key themes have been identified which will be discussed during this paper: first, the definition of bipolar disorders, their epidemiology and the effect of the illness on outcome, and secondly pharmacological interventions, psychosocial interventions and the use of coping strategy enhancement for this client group. The paper attempts to direct clinicians towards relevant further reading and research for the development of interventions when working with this client group.
