The previous research showed that psychological treatment is effective for people who have a mental disorder, such as bipolar disorder. Bipolar disorder is a severe disorder that the patients can have two extremes of mood episodes, which are depression and (hypo)mania. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a talking therapy that helps patients rectify their patterns of thoughts and behaviours. Nowadays, therapists would like to use cognitive behavioural therapy as an adjuvant therapy with medical treatment. Therefore, studying the theory and efficacy behind cognitive behavioural therapy is important. This review is based on previous studies, which are about cognitive behavioural therapy in bipolar disorder. Cognitive distortion is the factor that can be used in cognitive behavioural therapy, to analyze the incorrect pattern of thinking and behaving in patients with bipolar disorder. The deficits in social cognition and coping skills caused by bipolar disorder are also key factors used in cognitive behavioural therapy. Cognitive behavioural therapy is effective to treat insomnia, which is one of the symptoms of bipolar disorder. Child- and family-focused cognitive behavioural therapy is effective for patients with pediatric bipolar disorder. A limitation of previous research is that medicines could affect the actual efficacy of cognitive behavioural therapy, which are not taken into account. Plus, the lack of intervention research on life quality in bipolar disorder patients is another limitation. This review can provide advice to future research in the field of cognitive behavioural therapy and bipolar disorder.
