Building on the success of the first edition, this second
edition has been extensively revised and updated to include recent
developments in the assessment of bipolar disorder. Each chapter
summarizes the key issues surrounding a particular area of bipolar
disorder or bipolar spectrum disorder and presents the most
commonly used scales in their evaluation. The evidence base in each
chapter has been expanded and brought fully up-to-date. In
addition, two new chapters have been added on assessment of
functioning and assessment of suicide risk in patients with bipolar
disorder. The assessment of functioning chapter introduces the
newly developed and validated scale, the Functional Assessment
Short Test, which assesses six major areas of functioning and is
now widely used as an outcome measure in epidemiologic and
observational studies. The assessment of suicidality chapter
features the Columbia Classification Algorithm of Suicide
Assessment which classifies suicidality based on empirical findings
and predictive risk factors.
Written by a world renowned leading expert in the field of
bipolar disorder, this second edition of a Guide to Assessment
Scales in Bipolar Disorder is an essential reference for all
clinicians and health professionals providing a concise selection
of the key assessment tools for evaluating the patient with
suspected bipolar disorder.
