Since there is question lately (everywhere- not just this forum) if bipolar in children and adolescents is under- or over- diagnosed, I thought others might be interested in this. It's unclear to me if this form is used for him to gather statistical data for an upcoming book or if he (staff) actually get back to the parent to provide feedback (not that I'd wanting him diagnosis'ing thru the mail!). What I found most interesting is that all other evaluation forms I have seen have questions like "has child EVER...." and answer choices like "sometimes, often, never" without ever looking at the scenario of "20 times in one week but 0 times the previous and following 6 months", which to me, would make it impossible to diagnosis bipolar accurately. http://www.bipolarchild.com/survey/bcq.html Dr. Paopolos wrote "The Bipolar Child". I've started reading this book- haven't gotten very far. If anyone else has read it- is it all focused on younger children, or does it address bipolar onset in adolescents?
