Article 52: Integrating interpersonal social rhythm therapy and eye movement desensitization reprocessing in treatment planning for bipolar disorder

Description

The information presented in this article intends to assist clinicians in developing effective treatment goals for clients with bipolar disorder by integrating interpersonal social rhythm therapy (IPSRT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR). The information in this paper focuses on aspects of this diagnosis such as research associated with treatment options, advocacy suggestions for this population, and a fictional case study with a treatment plan that integrates IPSRT and EMDR. Due to the complexity of this diagnosis, its resemblance to other disorders, and its frequent comorbidity with other mental disorders, making accurate assessment of a bipolar disorder diagnosis is important in determining effective courses of treatment. In sum, a multifaceted approach may be needed when treating this disorder. Additional research needs to be conducted to determine the usefulness of psychotropic drugs as well as psychotherapies with and without the combination of medication.
