This volume belongs to the last group of American Psychiatric Association (APA) reviews that address annual advances in psychiatry. In this era of rapid advances and ever more rapid modes of communications, integration of historical perspectives, different presentations of mental conditions in different populations and individuals, and different properties and effects of many newer medications in various forms to choose from remains of value. The primary focus of this volume is on treatments supported by controlled studies in patients diagnosed with acute mania, acute bipolar depression, or rapid cycling—patients who need long-term maintenance, adjunctive medications, and psychotherapy.​
