Psychologists, licensed mental health professionals, and medical professionals commonly encounter clients suffering from panic disorder with agoraphobia. The Unified Protocol (UP) is a flexible, module-based, transdiagnostic treatment designed to treat the whole spectrum of emotional disorders, and it has been shown to be an effective, evidence-based intervention for this condition. In this workshop, participants will learn the basic structure of the UP and how to adapt each module to understand and treat core symptoms of panic anxiety and avoidance behavior.

Learning Objectives

1. Describe the transdiagnostic framework supporting the Unified Protocol
2. Identify how and why the UP conceptualizes emotional disorders, with a particular emphasis on panic disorder and agoraphobia
3. Outline the core modules of the UP and evaluate how they can be effectively applied to reduce symptoms and promote healing
