|Description:||Unified protocol for transdiagnostic treatment of emotional disorders – Facilitator Guide & Workbook provides step-by-step detailed procedures for assessing and treating specific problems and diagnoses.
Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders considers the commonalities of disorder-specific treatments of various emotional disorders, and is designed to be applicable to all anxiety and unipolar mood disorders, as well as other disorders with strong emotional components, such as many somatoform and dissociative disorders. The Unified Protocol (UP) capitalizes on the contributions made by cognitive-behavioral theorists by distilling and incorporating the common principles of CBT present in all evidenced based protocols for specific emotional disorders, as well as drawing on the field of emotion science for insights into deficits in emotion regulation. The UP contains seven modules and focuses on four core strategies: becoming mindfully aware of emotional experience; reappraising rigid emotion laden attributions; identifying and preventing behavioral and emotional avoidance; and facilatating exposure to both interoceptive and situational cues associated with emotional experiences. CBT strategies are incorporated and can be used by clinicians treating anxiety and depressive disorders. Detailed instructions for conducting each session, session outlines, and recommended homework assignments for clients are provided.
This is part of the “Treatments that Work” series that contain manuals and workbooks with step-by-step, detailed procedures for assessing and treating specific problems and diagnoses.
