Course Summary

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.
