Bipolar Disorder

  1. 1. Bipolar Disorder By: Sabira Gannie
  2. 2. What is Bipolar Disorder? <ul><li>Bipolar disorder is a serious mental illness that is characterized by extreme mood swings from mania to depression. Mania is an abnormally elevated mood, while depression is an abnormally low mood. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Psychoanalytic Approach <ul><li>The psychoanalytic approach to bipolar disorder says that the cause of both manic/depressive episodes arise from a low self-concept. Depressive episodes represent this, while manic episodes represent a defense against the low self-concept. </li></ul>

Trait Approach <ul><li>Mania: </li></ul><ul><li>Excessive happiness, irritability, less need for sleep, racing thoughts, increased energy, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Depression: </li></ul><ul><li>Sadness, loss of energy, increased need for sleep, change in appetite, thoughts of death/suicide, etc. </li></ul>
