The findings from this study indicate that group cognitive behavioural therapy combined with mood stabilizing medications was effective for some of the participants. Standard measures were used to monitor changes systematically and regularly. Self reports from participants suggested that they found the therapy useful and acceptable. The approach taken seems worth extending to a larger number of participants in a controlled trial, but meanwhile a detailed description of the treatment package is given, for wider dissemination of the methods.
