Bipolar Disorder and Troubled Teens: Intervention

In our work with teens struggling with bipolar disorder, and parents trying to work with the often difficult symptoms of bipolar problems, we have discovered that parents are too often so stressed by their children's behavior that they feel unable to address the root of the problems.

We recommend both therapy and an alternative approach to parenting, especially prior to employing overly aggressive authoritative intervention (incarceration or enrollment in a residential treatment program), unless the troubled teen's issues are so severe that such intervention is deemed necessary by you (the parents) and a therapeutic professional.

Unless safety and security is an issue, we normally recommend a graduated plan of intervention that begins with the home employing tools such as The Total Transformation Program®, then extends, as needed, to therapy, community, and out-of-home care. This Non-Impulsive approach is important when coping with bipolar issues. It also saves both time and money, as the more intensive interventions ALWAYS cost exponentially more.

In addition to our Strong Model Workshops and Coaching Services, we use this site to maximize the amount of information you can obtain on Teen Bipolar Disorder.

Note: Many of the entertaining and inspiring Workshops and Coaching Services found on InsightPros provide specific methods and approaches parents should use when working with teens struggling with Bipolar Disorder.

Bipolar Disorder and Troubled Teens: Parenting Relationship

Parenting Awareness: A troubled teen having problems with bipolar disorder may display: (when depressed) sadness, problems sleeping, eating, and loosing weight, negative thoughts about oneself (including thoughts about death and hurting oneself), and difficulties with attention and concentration.

When manic, bipolar teens may display euphoric or irritable moods, inflated self-esteem and over-confidence, increased talkativeness, distractibility, boundless energy, and a decreased need for sleep.

Bipolar disorder also involves hallucinations (such as hearing voices) and delusions.

Numerous parents of teens with bipolar disorder have attended InsightPros' Strong Model workshops. Our approach to the "anxiety of responsibility" strikes a "chord of truth" from the perspective of parents who have become frustrated with traditional, dogmatic discipline. Tradition doesn't work with those who struggle with bipolar disorder, and parents know it.

Between InsightPros workshops, and the development of this site and its resources, we hope to provide increasingly relevant resources to parents in need of dire help for their biploar children.
