Product Details


“Demitri and Janice Papolos have broken important new ground by taking on the challenging problem of bipolar disorder in children and adolescents. This book balances scientific and clinical knowledge with moving personal accounts of experiences of real families.” —Ross J. Baldessarini, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience, Harvard Medical School

“The Bipolar Child is a well-organized, practical, and authoritative book by highly knowledgeable authors. It fills a huge void and will be extremely helpful for families.” —E. Fuller Torrey, M.D., Executive Director, Stanley Medical Research Institute

“The strengths of the book are its poignant accounts of difficult-to-manage children, its exposition of much current thinking about early-onset bipolar disorder, and its comprehensive approach toward the needs of children and families. The authors’ tone is that of concerned experts who are aware of the emotional and practical obstacles confronting parents in obtaining help for their children.” —Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (A. Reese Abright, M.D.)

“Parents of my patients with bipolar disorder who have read the book returned to treatment with the whole family and have become active change agents at home, in school, and in our local government. Reading the book fuels an enlightened advocacy for the appropriate treatment modalities described by the authors in clear, simple, and concise terms.” —American Journal of Psychiatry (Truce T. Ordona, M.D.)

“The Papoloses have somehow managed to climb into the minds of the parents of bipolar children and answer our tremendous number of questions . . . Finally, parents of bipolar children have a book that will help them find hope!” —S. M. Tomie Burke, Founder, Parents of Bipolar Children and BPParent Listserv
