Editorial Reviews

Review

The Bipolar Workbook for Teens offers potent support for youth struggling with bipolar disorder, empowering them with knowledge and practical tools for their journey towards self-acceptance and self-knowledge.”
—Shirley Eyles, mental health nurse, certified Theraplay therapies in private practice and coauthor of Applications of Family and Group Theraplay



“I highly recommend this excellent workbook, not only for teens diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but also for those experiencing troublesome mood swings. Readers will learn essential skills to manage those symptoms. This workbook is user-friendly, well-organized, encouraging, and based in research.”
—Francine Brill, MD, FRCP(C), child and adolescent psychiatrist at Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, ON, Canada



“The authors of this book speak directly to youth in a respectful and genuine manner. There is tremendous value in reading stories of other teens who have shared similar experiences. This book is truly welcome addition to the educational resources available to adolescents who live with the complex difficulties of bipolar disorder.”
—Janice Phillips, B.Ed., educator and mental health social worker



“This is an excellent, easy-to-read workbook for teens suffering from bipolar disorder. Teens will identify with the client scenarios shared in this book. It presents a straight forward approach to gaining knowledge about the illness, learning the tools to help overcome symptoms, and practicing exercises to establish new thought patterns and behaviors. Used in conjunction with medication, the knowledge and exercises in this book will help teens prevent deterioration, take control of the symptoms of bipolar disorder, and optimize their quality of life.”
—Linda Jeffrey, RN, cognitive behavior therapist in private practice and manager of Crisis Services of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Simcoe County Branch

Format: Paperback
I am a mental health professional and work with people who live with Bipolar Disorder. I have facilitated a DBT program for over five years. This new book by Sheri VanDijk and Karma Guindon presents the DBT concepts in easy to read, plain language. She uses examples that are relevant to teen readers which makes it fun to read, as well. The book provides lots of interesting exercises to help the reader understand the impact of Bipolar Disorder on their thoughts,feelings and behaviors as well as offering many practical suggestions for using skills to improve quality of life. I found this an inspiring and hopeful resource dedicated to teens. I highly recommend this workbook!

I speak all over NJ to teens and adults about coping with grief and many types of loss. I always discuss with them mental health disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder (whether for themselves or regarding living with someone who is affected.) I bring along this book to show teens at my presentations. The book is easy to read and includes great tools, exercises and strategies for coping with bipolar disorder. Many teens who have been newly diagnosed or even those who have been silently suffering for some time have taken down the book title to order for themselves. Many adults have also used it and found it helpful as well. I highly recommend this book.

I was disappointed in this book. It did not go a very good job explaining the skills. It could be used as a supplement for the adolescent to complete after the skills have been taught to her. My bipolar teens did not enjoy doing the workbook, so we did some of it together. I think it can be a help, but you will need other material so the teen undetstands the skills.

I deal with teenagers all day long in a residential program. This purchase was AMAZINGLY HELPFUL! I had a kid say "I am not Bipolar". Just the first few pages that had the list of possible symptoms helped him to see that he may have mental health concerns, and the rest of the book was wonderful to help him work on his own problems. This book has been a blessing for my clients.

This book has a lot of helpful activities for teens with Bipolar. It helps teens understand what is going on and how they can try to manage their symptoms. The activities can be modified to use with adults as well.

I am a mental health therapist. I currently have three boys on my caseload between the ages of 10-14 who have been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. Two of the boys are currently working through the workbook, and it has been extremely helpful in giving them some control over their bodies and emotions. Great supplement to other therapeutic interventions. Tip: kiddos need to be aware of their diagnosis and be ready to process how their lives are affected by Bipolar before starting the book.
