Women and Bipolar Spectrum Disorders CEU
4.7 out of 5.0, Based on: 84 reviews
Bipolar disorder spectrum in women poses significant challenges for clinicians evaluating primary psychiatric symptoms, symptom overlap and comorbid conditions that can complicate diagnosis. This course examines the viewpoint that a bipolar diagnosis lands somewhere on a spectrum of the disorder, rather than adhering to a specific set of symptoms. Women who have been diagnosed as being on the spectrum have a unique set of gender-specific concerns that need to be addressed by mental health professionals.
