Since it first appeared on bookshelves, The Bipolar Child has made an indelible mark on the field of psychiatry and has become the resource that families rely upon. Now, with more than 200,000 copies sold, the first book about early-onset bipolar disorder is completely revised and expanded.


Bipolar disorder—manic depression—was once thought to be rare in children. Now researchers are discovering not only that bipolar disorder can begin early in life, but that it is much more common than ever imagined. Yet the illness is often misdiagnosed and mistreated with medications that can exacerbate the symptoms. Why? Bipolar disorder manifests itself differently in children than in adults, and in children there is an overlap of symptoms with other childhood psychiatric disorders. As a result, these kids may be labeled with any of a number of psychiatric conditions: “ADHD,” “depression,” “oppositional defiant disorder,” “obsessive-compulsive disorder,” or “generalized anxiety disorder.” Too often they are treated with stimulants or antidepressants—medications that can actually worsen the bipolar condition.
Since the publication of its first edition, The Bipolar Child has helped many thousands of families get to the root cause of their children’s behaviors and symptoms and find what they need to know. The Papoloses comprehensively detail the diagnosis, explain how to find good treatment and medications, and advise parents about ways to advocate effectively for their children in school. In this edition, a greatly expanded education chapter describes all the changes in educational law due to the 2004 reauthorization of IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), and offers a multitude of ideas for parents and educators to help the children feel more comfortable in the academic environment. The book also contains crucial information about hospitalization, the importance of neuropsychological testing (with a recommended battery of test...

  • This Book really has given me peace

    I would recommend this book to anyone who either thinks that their child might be ADD, depressed or Bi-polar. This book has finally given me peace. My 7 year old daughter has been struggling with her behavior her whole life. If I had only been given this book when she was 2 or 3, our lives would be very different now. But it is not too late, this book is helping me to better understand my daughter and her behavior. To allow those hurt feelings to be healed. My family to start to mend, and most importantly, give me hope for her future. I say anyone who either thinks their child could be, or who already has the diagnosis's above, should read this book. It talks about a lot of misdiagnosing of children, and that they really should be treated for bipolar before going on ADD or anti depressants. Please read this book! Submitted by : Mother of 2 wonderful children.

  • Very Informative

    This book is basically easy to read and gives solid information. I would recommend it for any parent who suspects their child might be bipolar.
