IBPI

IBPI (Integrated Bipolar Parenting Intervention)

What is IBPI?
IBPI stands for the ‘Integrated Bipolar Parenting Intervention’.

This is a digital resource with guidance on parenting for those who experience bipolar disorder. It includes 9 modules, covering areas such as ‘managing mood changes’ and ‘helping your child learn new skills’.

The website contains videos and interactive exercises, as well as information on bipolar disorder and parenting support. The IBPI website will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and can be accessed on a computer, a tablet or mobile phone (either through the website or through an app).

 

What is the study about?
Our team of researchers, clinicians, and parents with bipolar disorder have created the IBPI tool with the aim of helping people with bipolar with their parenting. We hope this will improve their children’s behavioural and emotional outcomes, improve the parents’ mood and confidence, and improve overall family functioning. Our aim is to make the IBPI site
available for parents with bipolar across the UK.
However, first we have to see if it works and if it is cost effective. To do this, the current study will test the effectiveness of IBPI on reducing child behavioural and emotional problems and parent stress and anxiety, and increasing parents’ confidence and family functioning, as well as exploring the costs involved in delivering the intervention.

Who is the study for?
We are looking for parents with bipolar disorder, who have a child aged 4-10 years old, and live in the UK. Participants will also need access to a computer, tablet, or mobile phone, as well as internet access to take part. If you want to take part but have issues with the cost of internet access, please let us know as we may be able to help with this.

 

To discuss this further, please contact the Surgery and ask to speak to a member of the research team.
