This book provides a comprehensive but practical understanding of the clinical approach to evaluating and caring for older people with bipolar disorder. Aspects of aging that impact the diagnosis, clinical course, and management of bipolar disorder are explained; in particular, attention is drawn to the implications of comorbidities and medical complexity for the psychiatric care of older individuals with the disorder. On the other hand, similarities to treatment in younger patients are also identified. The coverage includes thorough review of current research in the field. Clinical case vignettes are used throughout to highlight practical points, and each chapter includes “clinical pearls” that summarize key points for the clinician. The book closes by examining anticipated research directions and the future needs of this patient population.

Bipolar Disorder in Older Age Patients will be an ideal update for the practicing community or geriatric psychiatrist working with older patients with bipolar disorder.


“This is a comprehensive review of current research regarding the evaluation and management of older adults suffering from bipolar disorder. … It is intended for general psychiatrists caring for older adults with bipolar disorder. It is also relevant for all gerontologists, residents, medical students, and health care providers and policy makers involved in the creation of programs and treatment of this patient population. … Each chapter includes clinical vignettes, learning points, and clinical pearls to illustrate the principles.” (Michael Easton, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2017)
