Bipolar: An Updated Slant on the Disorder Including DSM-5 - Bipolar /
Healthcare Training Seminar
Taking a Different Direction toward Bipolar
Dr. Jay Carter is uniquely qualified to teach this course. A Diplomate Candidate
in Psychopharmacology (Prescribing Psychologists Register), he has conducted
over 6,000 psychological and psychiatric evaluations. Dr. Carter draws his
insight on bipolar disorder from both professional and personal experience. Not
only has he spent years facilitating recovery for people with bipolar disorder
at a county prison and the Caron Foundation (one of the top three drug and
alcohol rehabs in the country), he has also felt the impact of the disorder at
home: a number of his family members have had bipolar disorder, including his
Dr. Carter insists on more than an intellectual understanding of the bipolar
disorder. To treat this disorder in a state-of-the art way, one must have a FEEL
for it. He delivers this seminar with an appropriate sense of humor, using
stories and analogies to give you a good presentation of the disorder. When
describing his teaching method, Dr. Carter says, "I try not to use technical
terms so people don't get sleepy or have a headache by the end of the day. It is
explained in terms that you would use to explain it to a client. Once you see
the bigger picture, it helps the details fall into place and have more meaning."
Dr. Carter strives to keep the evidence-based information so fresh that prior
attendees report the updates and review, alone, are worth taking the seminar
again. Attend this interesting, fun seminar, and walk away with both a better
understanding of the bipolar disorder and a wealth of new knowledge to apply to
