Bipolar disorder, previously known as manic-depression, is characterised by unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Symptoms of bipolar disorder are more severe and different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through from time to time. Symptoms associated with Bipolar disorder can impact significantly on relationships, job or school performance, and can lead to suicide. Bipolar disorder can be treated, and those with the illness can lead full and productive lives.
In this course you will learn more about Bipolar Disorders including theoretical background, signs and symptoms, biopsychosocial components of aetiology, diagnostic criteria and treatment interventions with a focus on Applied Behavioural Analysis.
