Abstract

Treatment for emotional disorders in children and adolescents is increasingly being applied in a transdiagnostic manner to address the need for more broadly applicable, yet mechanism-focused psychotherapy. The Unified Protocols for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders in Children and Adolescents (UP-C/A) are modular, flexible, evidence-based treatment manuals that utilize empirically supported, largely cognitive and behavioral strategies to treat anxiety, mood, and other emotional disorders. In this chapter, we describe the rationale and empirical support for the use of the UP-C/A, provide a pragmatic overview of its contents, and briefly discuss application of core intervention components.
