Overview
Parents of children with bipolar disorder shouldn't have to settle for a trial-and-error approach to their child's well-being-they deserve immediate access to solidly researched and effective therapies. In this compassionate and optimistic book, expert clinician and renowned researcher Mani Pavuluri helps guide parents to proven treatments that are right for their child. Based on 20 years of experience with bipolar kids and their families, the book delivers step-by-step strategies for reducing or eliminating problems with mania, depression, aggression, sleep disturbances, and other symptoms. Parents learn how to deal with crises, partner with teachers and other school professionals, and work with doctors to effectively integrate medications with psychotherapy. Crucially, What Works for Bipolar Kids also emphasizes practical ways to maintain a positive atmosphere at home and to help these kids stay balanced, focus on their achievements, and feel good about themselves.

Wonderful, helpful book  Aug 10, 2008
This is a GREAT book. My eight year old son has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, so I own many books on the subject. "What Works for Bipolar Kids" is now one of my two favorites. Dr. Pavuluri discusses many different subjects, including medications, which is very helpful. I wish I lived in Chicago so that maybe my son would have the privelege of being one of her patients. Lots of wisdom, knowledge, and compassion were used in the writing of this book!
 
What Works For Bipolar Kids  Aug 5, 2008
WOW! This book is amazing! It is a must read. Dr. Pavuluri really understands what it is like. I felt like she was talking to me. I strongly encourage you to buy this book.
 
Bipolar disorder is not a death sentence to a miserable life - it can be overcome.  Jul 14, 2008
Bipolar disorder is not a death sentence to a miserable life - it can be overcome. "What Works for Bipolar Kids: Help and Hope for Parents" is a complete and comprehensive handbook for parents of bipolar children. Advice for these children and their families on how to deal with the problems that the disorder presents, including aggression, sleep problems, depression and other issues, is found throughout the book. "What Works for Bipolar Kids: Help and Hope for Parents'" is highly recommended for community library parenting collections and for any parent of a bipolar child.

Fantastic Resource  Jun 19, 2008
What Works for Bipolar Kids: Help and Hope for Parents

This book is a welcome addition to resources for parents struggling to help their child deal with a bipolar diagnosis. Dr. Pavuluri writes as though she is seeing into your family's heart and I know the knowledge shared in this book will ultimately help our family to heal. We will always have to grow and learn new ways to cope with this difficult diagnosis our daughter has received, but this book will be an essential tool along the way. Thank you to Dr. Pavuluri and her team for their years of research that ultimately led to her writing this book and for offering real solutions to the everyday challenges we, as parents of bipolar kids, face on a daily basis.

If you are new to this diagnosis, you MUST get this book. If you've been struggling with this diagnosis for awhile now - open the pages and help is on the way!!!! Thank you Dr. Pavuluri from the bottom of my broken heart!
