Your body isn’t working as it should. Your thoughts are triggering you. It can feel like you’re in a foreign place. How do you make friends with your body? How do you find peace within yourself? Acceptance can come from mindfulness. Paying attention can put you back in the hear and now. Viewing your circumstances and feelings without judgment can give you a sense of ease. We cannot control everything in our lives. For those who suffered trauma, this can be retraumatizing. We can feel helpless, afraid and out of control. But we can also remember that we always have a choice about our attitude and how we view the...

Bipolar disorder (BD) is a chronic psychiatric disorder characterized by recurring manic or hypomanic episodes and additional depressive episodes usually separated by periods of euthymic mood (APA 2013). Mood changes in BD are known to negatively impact cognitive performance, with evidence of cognitive abnormalities becoming more severe during manic and depressive episodes (Ferrier et al., 1999; Clark et al., 2002; Martinez-Aran et al., 2004). Disturbances in cognition affect social and occupational functioning of individuals (Green 2006; Malhi et al., 2007), with improvement in the quality of life and clinical symptoms as...

Surviving suicide loss is difficult. And in some sense, the resulting grief is open-ended. I am a mother and doctor whose two sons died by suicide associated with psychotic bipolar disorder. My ever-present sensitivity to the fierce loss of death by suicide is again touched when I hear of death by suicide. The suicides of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade triggered in me a renewed feeling of grief. Like so many, I felt I knew Anthony Bourdain. “No Reservations” was my introduction to Bourdain. As a fellow traveler and foodie, I fell in love with his eccentric style. Later, he drove me crazy when he was drunk and ...

Gender transitioning has always been a topic that makes many people uncomfortable. And ever since Bruce became Kaitlin, it’s been a frequent topic of conversation. Most of the discomfort comes from unfamiliarity, from presumptions, and (of course) from bigotry. In this episode, two transgender women explain what it means to be transgender, both generally and personally. They talk about their experiences going back more than twenty years. They discuss how transitioning, and the science of it, changed over the decades. And they offer their views on what they believe are the most important things for society to know abo...

Previous research on an efficacious cognitive-behavioral treatment for posttrauma nightmares and sleep disturbances (exposure, relaxation, and rescripting therapy; ERRT) has not tested the treatment in individuals with bipolar disorder. However, research suggests that individuals diagnosed with bipolar disorder are at increased risk for trauma exposure and development of posttrauma symptoms. The present pilot study sought to examine the acceptability and preliminary efficacy of a modified version of ERRT (ERRT-B) on reducing the frequency and severity of nightmares and improving sleep quality for 7 trauma-exposed individua...

By Emma Young Aerobic exercise – any activity that gets your heart pumping harder – improves mood, anxiety and memory. It can help people with major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder and anxiety disorder. Now there’s evidence, from a randomised controlled trial published in Frontiers in Psychiatry, that a programme of regular aerobic exercise also reduces psychopathology in people diagnosed with schizophrenia. And it seems to have a particular impact on so-called “negative” symptoms, such as apathy and loss of emotional feeling, which are not improved by standard drug treatments. “[W...

Based on studies conducted in community samples, the lifetime prevalence of both UD and BD is considered to be approximately 13% (Zimmermann  et al., 2009), and at least 50% of those who experience a unipolar depressive episode suffer from a sub-threshold BD (Angst et al., 2011). Moreover, at least 40% of patients with BD initially receive an incorrect diagnosis of recurrent depressive disorder (Ghaemi et al., 1999). When compared t o UD, BD may be considered a highly recurrent condition with a severe and chronic course associated with interpersonal problems, vocational disability, considerable mor...
