If a colleague were to ask me, What would you recommend I read if I want to become a real expert on bipolarity?" I would respond Bipolar Psychopharmacotherapy: Caring for the Patient." Journal of Bipolar Disorders And the second edition is even better! Bipolar Psychopharmacotherapy covers both pharmacotherapy and the supportive role of psychotherapy, psychoeducation and social approaches to provide a broad integrative philosophy of care for bipolar patients. Extensive coverage is given to special management issues such as the pharmacological care of women with bipolar disorder, children and the elderly, as well as bipolar depression and suicide prevention. The mood swings that characterize bipolar disorder can now be better stabilized in most patients than in the past, but the illness must be carefully managed throughout a person's life. Pharmacotherapy is central to the acute treatment and long-term management and as there are several classes of drugs which are often prescribed concurrently, treatment issues are complex. This essential reference work features critical reviews of the existing literature, plus information on new treatments that have been reported at peer reviewed scientific meetings, often written by the pioneering experts on a particular treatment. The second-generation antipsychotics are now covered in separate chapters to provide in-depth coverage of these agents. There are also new chapters on the pharmacological treatments of mixed states and rapid cycling and novel therapeutic vistas.

Silicon-Germanium Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors (SiGe HBTs) are perfectly suited for high-speed electronics. Since the fabrication costs per design cycle are rapidly increasing with progressing frequency and complexity of the systems, accurate compact models are essential in order to enable robust circuit design. This thesis focuses on selected important physical effects in advanced SiGe HBTs, which have been either insufficiently modeled or completely missing in conventional compact models. New compact model equations for the transfer current were derived and successfully applied to a large set of different technologies. Hereby, the "Generalized Integral Charge Control Relation" was used as a foundation. A physics-based model utilizing small-signal parameters obtained from measurements is derived for modeling the current dependent collector charge. A brief chapter about substrate effects in bipolar transistors comprises the derivation of a compact model for the bias-dependent substrate resistance as well as a proper partitioning of the substrate capacitance.New extraction methods for compact model parameters are introduced and the application of existing methods to advanced processes is discussed. The derived joint extraction method for the emitter and thermal resistance as well as a scalable model for the transfer current have been successfully applied to experimental data of fast HBTs. The derived model equations were applied to a selected very advanced SiGe H...
A thoroughly updated version of a key practitioner text, this new edition includes a treatment manual of cognitive-behavioural therapy for Bipolar Disorder which incorporates the very latest understanding of the psycho-social aspects of bipolar illness. Updated to reflect treatment packages developed by the authors over the last decade, and the successful completion of a large randomized controlled study which shows the efficacy of CBT for relapse prevention in Bipolar Disorder Demonstrates the positive results of a combined approach of cognitive behavioural therapy and medication Provides readers with a basic knowledge of bipolar disorders and its psycho-social aspects, treatments, and the authors’ model for psychological intervention Includes numerous clinical examples and case studies
This book provides real-life experiences of individuals who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. The book discusses useful and resourceful information about bipolar disorder and, particularly, what to know to assist individuals living with bipolar disorder and organizations working with individuals diagnosed with the brain disorder. The book also serves as a reference guide to an online mental health awareness curriculum with emphasis on bipolar disorder. The curriculum provides training for college students, employees, and managers of organizations such as educational institutions, businesses, law enforcement, and health care.
The author of this book has spent years, living with, managing, and learning about her bipolar disorder. Her decision to write the book came from her own experiences, particularly those after diagnosis."no one advised me on what to do. No one told me what to expect, how to manage it or more importantly, what I could do to stay well.it is.what has inspired me to write this". Become Your Own Bipolar Life Coach is "a positive message to those dealing with the curve balls that living with bipolar disorder can throw.. a message of practical hope". Broken down into manageable chapters at the end of which are Top Tips and Action Points that you can keep referring back to, it is as useful for the recently diagnosed, as for those who are looking to better manage and improve their lives with bipolar disorder. This straight talking and clear manual is based on the different methods and approaches the author has used, to improve her life and her relationship with bipolar disorder. Written with candour this insightful book, based on first-hand experience, empowers you to Become Your Own Bipolar Life Coach. You can contact the author at firstname.lastname@example.org
