Recent conceptualization of depressive, anxiety, and related “emotional” disorders stress their similarities instead of their differences. In response, there has been a movement in current years away from old-style disorder-specific guide for the treatment of these disorders and toward treatment approaches that emphasize on addressing psychological processes that appear to cut across disorders. These “transdiagnostic” evidence-based treatments may turn out to be more cost efficient and have the ability to increase availability of evidence-based treatments to meet an important public health need. Amongst clinicians, the Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders (UP), developed by Dr. David Barlow and associates, is the most identifiable and generally used transdiagnostic treatment protocol with empirical support for its use.
Applications of the Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders, (PDF) offers clinicians with a “how to” manual for using the UP to treat a wide range of commonly encountered psychological disorders in adults. Every chapter includes a specific depressive, anxiety, or related “emotional” disorder, and significant transdiagnostic processes are highlighted and discussed in relation to treatment. Case studies are utilized throughout to illustrate the real-world application of this exclusive cognitive behavioral protocol and to teach clinicians in the nuts and bolts of evaluation, case formulation, and treatment in accordance with a transdiagnostic perspective.
