Unified Protocol for the Treatment of Emotional Disorders
The Unified Protocol for the treatment of emotional disorders (UP; Barlow et al., 2011) is a recently developed transdiagnostic, emotion-focused, cognitive-behavioral treatment that targets deficits in emotion regulation that occur across the neurotic spectrum. In this workshop, Shannon Sauer-Zavala, Ph.D. reviews evidence supporting the development of transdiagnostic CBT interventions,  provides a description and demonstration of how to apply core UP treatment modules, and discusses the similarities and differences between the UP and traditional CBT for anxiety and mood disorders.

Shannon Sauer-Zavala, Ph.D. Research Assistant Professor, Boston University, Director of Education and Training for the Unified Protocol

Shannon Sauer-Zavala completed BA in psychology from Gettysburg College and her Ph.D. from the University of Kentucky. She completed her pre-doctoral clinical training at Duke University Medical Center where she specialized in cognitive-behavioral interventions for individuals with severe mental illness and chronic medical problems.

From there, Dr. Sauer-Zavala moved to Boston University’s Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders to complete her post-doctoral fellowship under Dr. Barlow’s mentorship in order to further enhance her CBT skills and to train in the UP.

Dr. Sauer-Zavala was promoted to faculty in BU’s Department of Psychology and currently divides her time between her research, clinical work, and dissemination efforts. Her research is focused on identifying factors that maintain symptoms across broad classes of disorders and using this information to streamline treatment for commonly co-occurring diagnoses. She is especially interested in developing/refining treatments for borderline personality disorder with comorbid mood and anxiety disorders.
