A fantastic resource for parents of bipolar kids
on July 21, 2009
Dr. Pavuluri's book is the #1 resource I will go to when I have questions about anything related to bipolar disorder in kids. My daughter, now 13, was diagnosed with bipolar 2years ago. Anyone dealing with this knows the confusion, frustration, heart break, exhaustion, etc. that goes hand in hand with this disorder.
Thankfully, Dr. Pavuluri has gifted us with an easy to read, encouraging, hopeful, and realistic guide to help parents navigate thru the difficult times as well as take joy in the special and unique children that we have been blessed with. Dr. Pavuluri's years of experience as director of the bipolar clinic at UIC in Chicago is evident in the wealth of information and expertise that she presents in this book. For me, personally, her chapter on medications , their descriptions, usage,dosage, etc. has been an enormous help. I feel confident knowing that she has years of experience using these medications with kids, and she clearly explains the pros and cons of each medication used in treating bipolar in kids.
You can not go wrong in purchasing this book . Keep it on your shelf and refer to it often.
Thank you Dr. Pavuluri for your book and all the help that you offer to parents of children diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
