6th Intl. Bipolar Conference

SIXTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON BIPOLAR DISORDER

June 16-18, 2005
David Lawrence Convention Center, Pittsburgh, PA

The brochure on this conference states:

Each of the five previous International Conferences on Bipolar Disorder has represented a unique opportunity for researchers, clinicians, and advocates from around the world to share new information on the pathophysiology, assessment and treatment of bipolar illness, as well as on psychobiological and psychosocial vulnerability factors, and recent findings in epidemiology and clinical course.

The meeting attendance has now grown so large that we are moving it to Pittsburgh's stunning new convention center on the banks of the Allegheny River. The amount of new research in bipolar disorder is so
extensive that we are changing the format of the meeting to include multiple concurrent sessions in addition to the six plenary sessions on rational polypharmacy, neurobiology, the bipolar spectrum, the burden of bipolar disorder, diagnosis and treatment, and the interplay between advocacy and research.

The conference will be held June 16, 17, and 18, 2005. As in the past, poster sessions will be held on the evenings of June 16 and 17. The well received "Rapid Communications" sessions will also
be repeated this year.

Presentations during the first two days of the conference will be technical and geared toward academic researchers and research-oriented clinicians. Psychiatrists, psychologists, neuroscientists
and pharmacologists interested in bipolar disorder should find the content of this first phase of the conference useful in their research and practice.

The third day of the conference, which will include a plenary session on diagnostic and treatment advances, an advocate/researcher ialogue, and advanced psychotherapy workshops focusing on cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, and interpersonal psychotherapy, as well as additional workshop sessions, will be appropriate to udiences that include psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, and other mental health care workers, as well as individuals who have bipolar disorder and their families.

Several of the Saturday workshops will be focused on issues relevant to advocacy for bipolar disorder

At the close of the program, participants should be able to:
1. Describe new approaches to the pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy of bipolar disorder.

2. Distinguish between the issues related to short and long-term treatment of bipolar depression.

3. Explain key issues from the update on neuroscience and clinical advances in bipolar disorder.

4. Discuss the life-span implications of bipolar disorder.
