How Effective Is Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) For The Treatment Of Bipolar Disorder?

Question: How effective is cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) for the treatment of bipolar disorder?

Answer: Cognitive behavior therapy -- or CBT -- is a well-known, well-researched instrument that we use commonly in the treatment of bipolar disorder. It actually can be quite effective in reducing symptoms, keeping people in treatment, and giving them a chance to plan their lives and be as productive as possible.

Having said that, CBT can be one of the mainstays of treatment, but by itself it won't be good enough. So it is often used in combination with pharmacotherapies.
