Lunch 'n' Learn Webinar: Unified Protocols for Youth 

Synopsis: The Unified Protocols for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders in Children and Adolescents present the compelling idea that there may be a more efficient method of presenting effective strategies 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. This webinar will provide a comprehensive introduction to the Unified Protocol for Children (UP-C) a structured, group therapy for children, which  includes a full parent-directed curriculum. Case illustrations and brief technique demonstrations throughout the webinar will help illustrate the flexible nature of the UP-C materials and how they may be utilized in a personalized manner.
