This chapter reviews empirical research on the role of individuals’ current and early environment and cognitive/personality styles as risk factors for the onset, course, and expression of bipolar spectrum disorders. The review is focused on an overarching question: Do psychosocial factors truly contribute to the onset, course, or expression of bipolar disorders? And, do they do so above and beyond the role of genetic predisposition?
