Why and when do we use family focused therapy or interpersonal and social rhythm therapy for bipolar disorder over CBT? (Quora)

I endorse family therapy for this. The patient with the diagnosis of bipolar disorder may also be in individual therapy. I suggest family therapy to work on issues, patterns and triangles that may contribute to the identified patient’s—here, the one with the diagnosis—symptoms. Family therapy can help the entire family confronting a member with a serious mental disorder. The impact of this disorder will reverberate throughout the family and that will create feedback for the identified patient(IP). As that patient begins to free her or himself from the role of the family’s IP s/he may well find the bipolar symptoms backing off.
