      The Unified Protocols for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders in Children and Adolescents: A One-Day Training

      About the workshop: The Unified Protocols for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders in Children and Adolescents (UP-C/UP-A) present the compelling idea that there may be a more efficient method of presenting effective strategies, such as those commonly included in CBT and third-wave behavior therapies, in order to simultaneously address an array of emotional disorder concerns in children and adolescents. The child and adolescent Unified Protocols frame treatment strategies in the general language of strong or intense emotions and promote change through a common lens that can be flexibly adapted across youth emotional disorders, including anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorders and others, sub-threshold presentations of such or combinations of these problem areas. Specifically, the UP-C and UP-A help youth by allowing them to focus on a straightforward goal across emotional disorders: reducing intense negative emotion states by extinguishing the distress and anxiety these emotions produce through emotion-focused education, awareness techniques, cognitive strategies, problem-solving and an array of behavioral strategies, including a full-range of exposure and activation techniques. This workshop will provide a comprehensive introduction to the UP-A, a modular, individual therapy for adolescents; and, a more structured, group therapy for children (UP-C), the latter of which also includes a full parent-directed curriculum. Case illustrations and brief technique demonstrations throughout the workshop will help illustrate the flexible nature of the UP-C and UP-A materials and how they may be utilized in a clinician-directed manner to optimize and personalize treatment outcomes. 7 CE credits for licensed psychologists in the State of Florida are available upon request from the Department of Psychology at the University of Miami.  On-site registration begins at 8:00am. Breakfast and snacks will be provided. Training will take place from 8:30-4:30pm with a lunch break from 12-1pm.
