The meaning we place on words has a tremendous influence on how we experience our condition. Challenging others' perceptions of our condition is very important to experiencing a paradigm shift in the way we view our condition and our approach to living with it. Unlinking symptoms from our reactions to them cannot be accomplished without challenging the definitions of mania and depression. In this lesson learn to help others and ourselves re-define what this condition means to us and the world. More info...
How To Direct Energy in Mania and Depression
The energy we feel in mania is very powerful. It can easily overwhelm us and take control of our thoughts and behaviors. We can learn to use it to our advantage but we must be careful. This course gives practical understanding and exercises that give students the ability to channel the energy in mania and depression for positive use in a safe and productive manner. More info...
Wrestling With An Idea
How can one take a concept and make it our own so it integrates with our self-understanding and self-knowledge? What questions or proposals would a person reject initially and later come to respect, admire, or believe in? This course presents the concept of wrestling with an idea and how it applies to specific concepts of Bipolar IN Order.
There are times in which our states may overwhelm us to the point that our functionality gets affected. Although the ultimate goal of the Bipolar Advantage program is to reach full functionality during the experience of varied mood episodes, we acknowledge the need for safe and effective crisis management plans. This course will help you make sure that the plans are in place.
Bipolar IN Order Book Course
Course based on the Bipolar IN order book by Tom Wootton. There are so many examples of bipolar "disorder" that it is easy to understand why so many people try to avoid it instead of facing it and getting it under control. We can choose to view depression, mania, hallucination, and delusion from at least two different perspectives--either as "disorder" or as "in order." Knowing that we have a choice of perspectives leads us to the understanding that we do not have to accept a diminished life. More info...
