ABSTRACT
The authors of this study have added to a recently burgeoning literature that attests to the feasibility and efficacy of manualised, psychosocial interventions as adjuncts to pharmocotherapy in the treatment of bipolar disorder. The authors are to be commended for conducting a randomised controlled trial with a credible control intervention and for following bipolar patients for 15 months after the protocol ended. Family focused therapy conferred a clinically significant protection against relapse and time to relapse compared with basic psychoeducation and crisis management.
