The Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders

May 17, 2013 8:45 am -
May 17, 2013 4:30 pm

Event Description

Master Series in Clinical Practice

Jointly sponsored by The Continuing Education Program at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Major Teaching Hospital of Harvard Medical School; Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute; and the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology.

The Master Series affords the chance to spend a complete day with leaders in our field to consider the unique perspective each speaker brings to the challenging dilemmas in both theory and practice. We hope that you will consider joining us for the entire series at a reduced tuition or choose the programs most relevant to your own practice.

David H. Barlow, PhD, Todd J. Farchione, PhD and Kristen K. Ellard, PhD, instructors

The Unified Protocol (UP) is a transdiagnostic, emotion-focused cognitive-behavioral treatment designed to be applicable across the anxiety and mood disorders. This protocol emphasizes the adaptive, functional nature of emotions, and seeks to identify and correct maladaptive attempts to regulate emotional experiences, thereby facilitating appropriate processing and extinction of excessive emotional responding to both internal (somatic) and external cues. This workshop will review recent evidence supporting the development of the UP and discuss applications across emotional disorders.  Workshop participants will learn how to apply treatment components through instruction, case examples, and clinical vignettes.

Upon completion of the program, the student will be able to:

·         Summarize evidence supporting a transdiagnostic conceptualization of emotional disorders

·         Conceptualize cases from a transdiagnostic perspective

·         Apply core components of the UP to the treatment of emotional disorders

·         Overcome challenges of applying treatment concepts to diagnostically diverse populations
