Editorial Reviews

"Finally, a book about pediatric bipolar disorder that really gets it right, offering help and hope where so much misinformation and misunderstanding have interfered with parents' getting the best for their child. Given all the confusion about diagnosis and treatment, Dr. Pavuluri's book is a godsend for parents. Her writing is warm and welcoming, and her practical wisdom and common sense leap off the page."--Peter S. Jensen, MD, Director, The REACH Institute

"The approach in this book has helped me achieve new stability for my son. For parents in search of help, this book will become your compass for all that lies ahead. Dr. Pavuluri’s expertise, passion, and tireless effort shine through on every page. She provides excellent information on how to manage bipolar disorder, choose and communicate with care providers, and advocate for your child in the school and health insurance arenas. The book is refreshing in its overarching sense of optimism, empathy, and support."--J. McCarthy, parent

"It's as if Dr. Pavuluri wrote this book for me and my family! Reading it gave me a better understanding of why my son with bipolar disorder acts the way he does, together with tools to help alleviate his pain. Throughout, Dr. Pavuluri demonstrates her understanding of these children's feelings and provides invaluable explanations and resources. This book shows parents like me that we are not alone. It is truly inspirational, and has given me new hope for my son."--Laurie P., parent

"Dr. Pavuluri speaks frankly to parents, but with a comforting wisdom. She compares treatment to building a house--medication management is the foundation, psychological counseling provides the bricks, and family therapy is the cement that holds it all together. This book provides a useful and encouraging blueprint."--Gabrielle A. Carlson, MD, Director, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Stony Brook University School of Medicine

"Dr. Pavuluri has seen it all--the stress on families, the frustrations in finding the right medications, the battles for support in school. This book will be a major help as you strive to make sense of your child's symptoms and the many different treatment recommendations you may receive."--David J. Miklowitz, PhD, author of The Bipolar Disorder Survival Guide

"The book contains a wealth of resources, and sheds light on appropriate parenting skills, effective relationships with the child's school, types of clinicians, available medications, and much more. What Works for Bipolar Kids is a very helpful resource for parents, and is also a good addition to the mental health clinician's list of recommended books on the topic."
