Mood problems affect a wide age range of young people and have tremendous impacts on functioning and relationships (Moreira, Van Meter, Genzlinger, & Youngstrom, 2017; Van Meter, Moreira, & Youngstrom, 2011). And good diagnosis and formulation can be challenging, yet often crucial for picking the best treatment (Goldstein et al., 2017).

Most research on bipolar disorder and DMDD has been conducted in the last 10-15 years, meaning training on these issues has been “playing catch-up” to the research.

As a result, the practice community has not had much formal training on the assessment or treatment of bipolar disorder in youth, with poor diagnostic agreement (Jenkins & Youngstrom, 2016; Jenkins, Youngstrom, Washburn, & Youngstrom, 2011; Jensen-Doss, Youngstrom, Youngstrom, Feeny, & Findling, 2014; Rettew, Lynch, Achenbach, Dumenci, & Ivanova, 2009).

This workshop updates assessment strategies for bipolar disorder in youth and young adults, sharing translated and culturally adapted approaches to interviewing and assessment (Youngstrom, Choukas-Bradley, Calhoun, & Jensen-Doss, 2014) and showing you how to stay informed on the science behind different treatment options. You will learn tools and techniques to help determine when a problem is a mood disorder or some other problem (Ong et al., 2016; Jenkins & Youngstrom, 2016; Youngstrom et al., 2014) and improve progress and outcomes (Youngstrom et al., 2017).

We will also review evidence-based pharmacological (Goldstein et al., 2017) and psychosocial and alternative treatments (Fristad & Macpherson, 2014) with information about how to check for updates. This workshop also presents information from recent meta-analyses (Moreira et al., 2017; Youngstrom et al., 2018; Youngstrom, Genzlinger, Egerton, & Van Meter, 2015), practice parameters (McClellan, Kowatch, & Findling, 2007), and reviews (Van Meter, Youngstrom, & Findling, 2012; Youngstrom et al., 2017), to provide clinicians, administrators, and policymakers with practical information that can guide their work.

This workshop also builds on doctoral training in psychology by updating it with the newest research evidence and by adding a cutting-edge framework for interpretation. We do this by merging the strengths of methods from Evidence-Based Medicine (Straus, Glasziou, Richardson, & Haynes, 2011) with traditional psychological assessment (Youngstrom et al., 2017; Youngstrom, Morton, & Murray, 2020) and by using technology and new brief assessments to take a measurement-based care approach to improving mood disorder outcomes (Guo et al., 2015).

The material presented in this workshop is tightly connected to the research literature, all presented by one of the leaders in this field.

At the conclusion of the workshop, attendees will be better able to —

  • Articulate what assessment procedures are available to aid in differential diagnosis and measuring response to treatment, and the evidence base for them;
  • Distinguish which symptoms and risk factors are helpful in differentiating bipolar disorder, depression, and externalizing problems;
  • Apply new assessment approaches to improve differential diagnosis and measure treatment response;
  • Recognize how often bipolar and other disorders occur in different settings, such as colleges, outpatient services, forensic settings, and inpatient units;
  • Integrate risk factors and test results to guide next clinical actions for assessment and treatment
  • Demonstrate specific techniques to use with patients with bipolar disorder.
