Twelve years ago, author Stephen Nawotniak was diagnosed with bipolar disorder after a weeklong hospitalization for a severe case of depression. He has been coping with the symptoms and in the process of recovery since. In Handbook for Healthy Living with a Mood Disorder, he offers an experienced-based sharing of skills and tools that have worked for him. Relying on his experience as an occupational therapist, he focuses on constructing a meaningful quality of life using life skills that are effective and important for everybody while addressing and accommodating the needs unique to a bipolar disorder. He explores the intervention approaches-developing skills, modifying tasks, providing tools, modifying contexts, adapting environments, and developing task alternatives-that allowed him to differentiate his diagnosis from his personality, discern problem areas, and restructure his lifestyle so that he could successfully live with the condition and not simply manage or cope with it as an illness. Using his methods, you can do the same.
