Schizoaffective disorder bipolar type worksheet
What is the theory behind this schizoaffective disorder bipolar type worksheet?
Schizophrenia and a mood condition are combined in schizoaffective disorder. The two subtypes of schizoaffective disorder are schizoaffective bipolar type and schizoaffective depressed type. In the schizoaffective bipolar type, the manic happens sometimes along with depression. The treatment for schizoaffective bipolar type disorder includes both medication and cognitive behaviour therapy.
How will the worksheet help?
In therapy, mood symptoms are typically addressed first. This is partially due to the fact that symptoms of mania and depression typically respond to therapy better than those of psychosis. This worksheet will help clients to monitor their mood on a daily basis and observe the fluctuations in mood.
How to use the worksheet?
The therapist can provide this worksheet to the clients as homework and instruct them to monitor and record their mood on a daily basis.
