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.

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
Overcome challenges of applying treatment concepts to
diagnostically diverse populations
