Do you or someone you love have bipolar disorder? If so, this episode is for you.
Dr Bill Selig is a clinical psychologist in the Bay Area and author of the new book "When Your Partner Has Bipolar Disorder." In this episode Bill and I talk about changing perceptions of bipolar disorder, the best new treatments, and the relationship to creativity (which was also the topic of his dissertation at Stanford University’s Bipolar Disorders Clinic). He co-led a 2014 revision of the psychotherapy for bipolar disorder treatment track at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, California, where he later cofounded the dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) program.
This is a great conversation with a very knowledgeable man.
