Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT): Skills for Transdiagnostic Treatment

Lisa Cromer, Ph.D.



There are hundreds of cognitive behavioral treatment (CBT) manuals on the market and it can be confusing about which to use when clients have co-occurring disorders or when symptoms and problems seem to shift across treatment. This workshop will present a transdiagnostic approach and skills that have a strong research base across disorders. Skills from the Unified Protocol, which is a trans-diagnostic, emotion-focused CBT that target core deficits across anxiety, depressive, and related disorders, including eating disorders, will be reviewed. The workshop will first briefly review the evidence and need for a transdiagnostic approach. Skills that are reviewed will include goal setting, motivational enhancement, understanding emotions, mindfulness, cognitive flexibility, and exposures.

Learning objectives:

    • Describe rationale for a transdiagnostic approach.
    • Apply emotion-focused treatment principles and strategies to patients with comorbid emotion disorders.
    • Differentiate between interoceptive and situational exposures.
    • Identify four components of CBT treatment that are effective across disorders.
