Most of your clients have more than one mental health diagnosis.
But so many of the treatment modalities in use today fail to recognize the complexity of these clients. Developed and tested to address one disorder at a time, their singular focus just doesn’t deliver the fast relief that your clients struggling with more than one condition deserve.
It is exhausting - for you and your clients - to jump from one set of strategies to another to ensure that all symptoms are addressed.
And it’s time consuming. Having comorbid conditions can extend the length of care, which increases the possibility that your clients lose faith in treatment and drop out before meeting their goals.
But comorbidity doesn’t have to complicate your treatment plan.
The Unified Protocol, an emotion-focused CBT shown to be effective in over 70 rigorous clinical trials, was designed specifically to target the core features of mental health issues so that multiple conditions can be treated simultaneously.
And now you have the chance to learn directly from Dr. Shannon Sauer-Zavala - co-developer of the UP with Dr. David H. Barlow and others at Boston University! After attending this comprehensive, 2-day training, you’ll feel confident delivering this complete set of flexible, evidence-based interventions right away to:
And best of all, UP skills are easy for you to learn and implement, and easy for your clients to use.
Register today! Simplify your practice and leave behind the confusion and frustration of treating multiple conditions by treating them all at once.
Continuing education credit information is coming soon for this live webcast.
