Titan's Fire: Integrated Care and Empowerment for People in the Bipolar Spectrum, CD format
By Michael Freeman

Throughout history, titans of civilization have been touched by the fire of the bipolar spectrum. The force of bipolar passions has powered cultural leaders whose contributions shape the context of our lives. From Martin Luther, Napoleon Bonaparte and Vincent Van Gogh to Ernest Hemingway, Winston Churchill and Ted Turner, the impact of bipolarity has affected many of the extraordinary people whose life work impacts us the most.

People in the bipolar spectrum are frequently seen in mental health practices. Loved ones and families of bipolar patients are adversely affected and Bipolar Disorder is increasingly recognized in children as well. It commonly co-occurs with anxiety disorders, Attention Deficit Disorder, substance abuse, and other conditions addressed by mental health clinicians. In this result-oriented program you will become familiar with the rapid evolution, and current state-of-the-art in treatment for people in the bipolar spectrum. Psychopharmacology, cognitive and behavioral therapy, life management and wellness skills updates will be presented in an application-oriented manner designed to enhance the effectiveness of the practicing clinician.

By listening to this program, you will enhance your ability to:

Understand the incidence, prevalence, clinical features and course of bipolar disorder
