Title: A Transdiagnostic Approach to the Treatment of Emotional Disorders: An Introduction to the Unified Protocol

Presenter: Todd J. Farchione, Ph.D., Boston University


This webinar will provide clinicians with an introduction to the Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders (UP; Barlow et al., 2011). We will briefly review the theoretical background and efficacy data supporting this transdiagnostic intervention; however, the presentation will primarily focus on the clinical application of the UP’s primary therapeutic cognitive-behavioral components (including mindfulness, cognitive reappraisal, and exposure). Attendees are expected to gain a better understanding of the UP and how this innovative protocol can be effectively applied in their clinical practice. Case examples will be used to illustrate how the core treatment modules can be successfully applied transdiagnostically to anxiety and related disorders.

Dr. Farchione is currently a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Boston University (BU). For the past twelve years, he has been a member of the clinical research group at the Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders at BU (CARD). Dr. Farchione’s research is focused on understanding emotion regulation processes, identifying mechanisms of change in treatment, and on developing new preventative measures and improved treatments for emotional disorders. Dr. Farchione is one of the co-developers of the UP and has collaborated with Dr. Barlow and others on several research studies aimed at the development and evaluation of this treatment protocol.


Learning Objectives:

  1. Apply core UP treatment modules to anxiety and mood disorders
