I've been researching therapies this weekend and found a bit of information that I thought might help others. There is a therapy called "family-focused therapy" which is where the therapist works with the entire family/caregivers to educate them on the diagnosis, help with coping and preventative strategies, problem-solving, etc. Of course, if there is something going on in the family that is "triggering" episodes, it would help identify and correct that, too. This therapy is listed in several issues of the Journal for American Academy of Child and Adolescent Pshychiatry. It has been around for several years and was discussed in an article printed in the New York Times. It is described as: It is recommended for several psychiatric disorders in kids, especially BiPolar (BP), in the psychiatric journals. When I did a google search for it, I did not find it listed in any journal or website for psychologists. (I have no idea why psychologists wouldn't be writing about this as much as psychiatrists, especially since it is a recommended psychotherapy, along with individual CBT.) I did find it on an individual psychologist's website (in Colorado or somewhere far from me). There has apparently, been a lot written about it this past year, I guess due to the increase of BiPolar (BP) diagnosis's. I hope this can help someone besides me!
