This useful self-help book is in four parts.

Part One sets the background and discusses

  • the nature of mood swings
  • the causes of manic depression
  • the types of treatment available
  • the CBT model of mood disorders

Part Two focuses upon

  • self-monitoring
  • self-regulation
  • managing problems of medication

Part Three deals with the self-management of depression and hypomania, and puts into practice the techniques learned in Part Two. These skills in turn are preparation for Part Four, which discusses how mood swings can be monitored in the future, and how the skills can be applied to other areas of life.
