ACE Foundation Programs
Distinguishing bipolar disorder from depression and borderline personality is one of the most difficult tasks clinicians face in everyday practice. This seminar will provide clinicians with a/our part diagnostic method to distinguish patients with borderline personality and unipolar depression from those with bipolar illness. Drawing on empirically tested research and psychodynamic studies, Dr. Quinn will discuss the many ways that clinicians can help patients and their families struggling with bipolar illness. Evidence based psychotherapies will be discussed. Participants will learn why antidepressants and atypical antipsychotics should not form the foundation of treatment for bipolar illness.
