Webinar: A Clinical Discussion of Mixed States in Bipolar Disorder
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: In the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5), the previous definition of a “mixed” bipolar episode (which required presence of concurrent manic and depressive symptoms) was replaced with a “mixed features” designation that captures subsyndromal symptoms and can be applied to episodes of depression, hypomania, or mania. In this webinar, Dr. Ketter will discuss the clinical implications of this update, including how these new definitions could impact diagnosis and treatment. He will also explore other clinical questions, including the possible relationship between mixed states and suicidality and the greater prevalence of mixed states in women compared with men.
