What You Will Learn

Bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) has been one of the most common mental/behavioral health challenges identified in the past ten years. Some students suffer quietly – exhibiting few outward signs at school.  Others erupt with the frustrations from this intense and energy-draining condition – displaying distracting behaviors that can be very challenging to educators and other professionals who work with youth.

This webinar will provide information and answers:

  • Recognizing the challenges of bipolar disorder
  • Prevention tools to help students manage
  • Behavioral and emotional support processes
  • Instructional strategies to maximize success
  • Partnering with families

We will review:

  • Symptoms and characteristics
  • Patterns of behavior
  • Medical aspects of treatment
  • Collaboration with the family
  • Classroom issues
  • Social and behavioral skills
