Miklowitz et al1 present a meta-analysis of psychosocial interventions in bipolar disorder, concluding adjunctive psychotherapy to pharmacotherapy is more effective than treatment as usual in reducing recurrence and treating depression symptoms, among other outcomes. This is an important examination with clinical implications. We highlight here some considerations that may affect interpretation of their findings.
