Participants will understand:
1. Neurophysiology as it relates to Bipolar Disorder
2. Bipolar disorder and its associated challenges with regard to treatment management
3. The elegance and sophistication of Neuromodulation Technology and Mindfulness-based interventions.
4. How to design treatment regimens that facilitate not only symptom management but build resilience in thriving vital patients.
