The article provides an overview of published treatment manuals for psychotherapy in bipolar disorders and discusses content and structure of manualized programs. This is followed by a more detailed description of an elaborated psycho-educative program which have successfully been applied in individual as well as in group settings for the education of inpatients, outpatients and patients' relatives. Future research needs to further evaluate existing programs in terms of treatment efficacy.
