Conclusions

In conclusion, it seems that there is mounting evidence of the clinical efficacy and effectiveness of CBT, which can be a most useful mode of psychological intervention for individuals suffering from bipolar disorder. It appears that CBT is acceptable and appeals to patients with bipolar disorder for its structured application, the high level of autonomy, and its potential to integrate past and current experiences in a comprehensive and applicable framework. Furthermore, reformulations and adaptations of the cognitive behavioural model of affective and psychotic disorders allow the integration of developmental and interpersonal facets of bipolar disorder in a beneficial way. Discussion of the most optimal form of delivery of this psychotherapeutic intervention remains inconclusive. The significant deficits and losses experienced by patients with bipolar disorder in all aspects of their lives support longer and more integrated treatment modalities and call for the investigation of a comprehensive developmental model of bipolar psychopathology.
