Conceptualizing and Assessing Bipolar Spectrum Disorders (1.5 CEs)

The concept of Bipolarity has changed and now includes a broader range of mood disturbances, which challenge conventional diagnostic assumptions. Panel members present multiple methods for assessing mood and bipolar spectrum conditions beginning with history-gathering and clinical interview techniques, and using selected rating scales, and projective, performance-based methods.
