The observation that risk-taking prompted by positive affect leads to a further escalation of affect points to the need to interrupt this cycle during the earliest phase of a hypomanic episode. Received Jun 6; Accepted Aug Finally, a causal analysis provided a clear understanding of how challenges related to each other and how they related to the described needs.

Hence, it is argued that these perspectives should be explicated and integrated into clinical guidelines, clinical practice, and research Misak ; Rycroft-Malone et al. Our findings highlight the importance of therapeutic strategies to ameliorate rumination in bipolar patients, and also the potential value of psychoeducational methods of reducing risk taking in response to incipient manic symptoms. Finally, the BIO study does not include randomised interventions limiting causal interpretations of the results.
Existing cognitive behavior therapy strategies which have been shown to be effective already address these issues to some degree . This account is consistent with recent neuroimaging studies, which have pointed to the abnormal processing of reward stimuli in bipolar patients and at-risk samples .
The hypotheses were mostly confirmed, with a number of implications requiring comment. Supplementary Material.
We hypothesize that this more comprehensive understanding would help to close the gap between clinical practice and research.
