dc.description.abstractThis manuscript thesis is written in an attempt to provide a glimpse of the experience of family members caring for a loved one with bipolar disorder. Positive and negative aspects that caregivers to loved ones with bipolar disorder experience are discussed. The potential medical implications from a genetic standpoint of children of individuals with bipolar disorder and firsthand accounts of how children experience having a parent with bipolar disorder are discussed. The experiences that caretakers have when interacting with medical professionals and recommendations as to how to improve these interactions are also explored. Findings are summarized in the final chapter, a discussion of the limitations of the work is offered, and concluding remarks are made.en_US
