5 Things to Keep in Mind in Bipolar Sexual Relationships

5 Things to Keep in Mind in Bipolar Sexual Relationships | Mood disorders | Scoop.it


"When it comes to sex, think of bipolar as a force-multiplier, as much a turn-on as a turn-off.  Oh, the possibilities.  Alas, the risks. "

-----


Curator comment: This good-natured and insightful slideshow is included here because problems related to hypersexuality are very common in bipolar disorder.

A new study shows that mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) can help the moods of people diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. They did a study with 12 participants who suffer from Bipolar Disorder, they all participated in MBCT and had a three week check-up. They found that the participants had better mindfulness, less depressed moods, less difficulty paying attention, and better control over their emotions.

This article introduced a type of therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, that may improve the well being of those living with chronic mood disorerds. Of course there are other therapys like family therapy and CBT that are being used to treat those with bipolar disorder. However, this article states that mindfulness therapy has shown improvements in all areas of life for those who have a mood disorder. I think it would be amazing if we could find one kind of therapy that shows such improvements to give those with mood disorders hope!

jPerhaps I just haven't experienced this much, but it seems as though mindfulness isn't talked about much in relation to bipolar disorder. Mindfulness is huge right now and there is a lot of research being done on mindfulness based therapy but I have never seen or heard of anything relating mindfulness and bipolar disorder. However, it makes sense mindfulness therapy could greatly help someone suffering from bipolar disorder. Mindfulness improves emotional regulation and seems to enhance consequential thinking which goes right along with the symptoms of bipolar disorder. A previous article I read discussed apps on phones to help track manic or depressive episodes and hopefully intervene and help client manage their bipolar disorder. I think mindfulness would be a great tool to include in such an app because it can help individuals dealing with bipolar regulate their emotions and establish consequential thinking. Imagine how helpful mindfulness focused around bipolar disorder could potentially be for a person!

 

I also read an article about children being diagnosed with bipolar disorder and the benefits of finding and understanding this diagnosis early. I wonder what impact mindfulness could have if used with a child who was diagnosed early with bipolar disorder. From what I have read and learned, it seems something like mindfulness could really help kids suffering with bipolar disorder. Kids and adolescents already struggle with emotional regulation and consequential thinking so dealing with bipolar on top of normal developmental phases is probably pretty overwhelming. It seems mindfulness could greatly impact those struggling with bipolar disorder, especially children.

Visibility In The Ocean

Visibility in your extended supply chain can be a nebulous effort that can turn into an unending effort providing limited to negative benefits. While a well coordinated and focused visibility initiative can bring about huge benefits, if you are not careful you can just as easily be involved in an initiative that never brings benefits. I think that a visibility initiative focused on your extended supply chain can be a ‘blue ocean’ strategic initiative. On the other hand a blue ocean strategy does not mean that you should try to boil the ocean with your initiative. I think that the opportunities that can be provided by a strong and imaginative visibility initiative are almost boundless. I think that the visibility potential has only scratched the surface of the opportunities. You also must be careful that you don’t get overwhelmed by the potential opportunities, remember the operative word in BI is ‘Intelligence’, so as I’ve said in the past, your objective is to create intelligence, or knowledge. Start with something small that can provide a foundation for the future, start with something that requires support from your partners and will also provide benefits to both your partners and your own organization, remember a blue ocean strategy does not require that you boil the ocean. Now that you’ve decided that visibility can be a strategic advantage to your extended supply chain and that visibility will provide mutual benefits to all of your participating partners, and you’ve also realized that there is a potential for developing a highly beneficial blue ocean strategy, so where do you start? I think that the best way to develop a blue ocean strategy is to not start out to develop a blue ocean strategy, focus on the identification of benefits and the development of knowledge and I think you will be surprised how quickly the strategy and mission can be defined. A piece of advice here, don’t be greedy and don’t be selfish, especially in the initial phases of your visibility initiative. It would be best, I think, to build a mutually beneficial first step that may even provide more benefits to your partners than to yourself, remember the old networking adage - in order to make a withdrawal you must first make a deposit. In the initial phase of your visibility initiative you should try to focus on an objective that provides benefits to your partners. Start with discussing your thoughts and direction with your partners in your extended supply chain. Start with developing the key objectives with your partners in your extended supply chain. Start with a focus on developing knowledge that will benefit your extended supply chain. Most of all start with expecting the best of your partners and I think you will find that your partners may surprise you. I think that a strategic visibility initiative encompassing your extended supply chain can be a game changing initiative driving huge benefits to yourself and all partners in your extended supply chain. It is important to reiterate again that you must strive to maintain focus and don’t fall into the trap of trying to boil the ocean, your objective in this initiative should be creating knowledge from the vast and varied amounts of data that is available across your extended supply chain. Now for the audience participation portion of this program……. Have you thought about developing a shared definition of visibility across your extended supply chain? What do you see as your current visibility needs and how are you meeting these needs? Does this provide the ability to grow and the flexibility to change as your needs grow and change?
