When therapy and medications fail, and clients remain mired in depression, irritability, anxiety, and distractibility, it can leave you feeling frustrated, ineffective and wishing you could help them find the relief they deserve.
But many of these clients may not simply be depressed. Up to 80% of them may have unrecognized bipolar disorder. And when bipolar clients are misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated with antidepressants, effective psychotherapy often proves to be difficult if not impossible.
