"By its nature, the sheer pervasiveness of anxiety and related mood disorders leaves clients feeling uncertain, fragmented and distressed, with clinicians similarly trying to keep up in a game of therapeutic whack-a-mole. Masterful at organizing and simplifying complex theory and techniques, Dr. Barlow has identified and will teach you the five core skills for helping clients reduce their distress; mindful emotional awareness, challenging automatic thoughts, overcoming avoidance tactics, increasing distress tolerance, and safe emotional exposure. And he does so by walking you step-by-step through eight scientifically-grounded modules of treatment which include setting goals, understanding emotions, cognitive flexibility, emotional exposure and recognizing accomplishment. Honed over decades of tested clinical research with thousands of patients, the beauty of the Unified Protocol is its simplicity, both in theory and practice. It is ready right out of the box to help you work efficiently and effectively with your clients struggling with anxiety and related emotional disorders. By watching this interview, you will be able to: 1. Describe the core features of the anxiety disorders; 2. Utilize the therapeutic principles of the Unified Protocol in your treatment; 3. Organize your treatment techniques into a coherent and effective system of treatment." - Supplied by publisher.
