Abstract

Family caregivers of people with bipolar disorder experience a range of difficulties in understanding and coping with the impact of the disorder The Family Support Team at the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, Queensland, developed an educational supportive program for families of people with bipolar disorder that sought to improve caregiver knowledge of The illness, reduce caregiver distress, and enhance caregiver coping. The program also sought to moderate caregiver attributions of patient behavior in order tobuild an illness perspective of behavior. The bipolar program was developed trialed, and evaluated. Analysis of results shows encouraging improvements for some families in knowledge distress, attributions, and ways of coping. Practice and research implications include identifying differences with the schizophrenia program, the importance of a problem-solving focus, maintaining a balance between information giving and support, and timing of the intervention.
