Given the high comorbidity rates among the emotional disorders, effective evidence-based treatments need to be able to address the presence of comorbid disorders in an integrated fashion. The Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders (UP) was created in part to address the comorbidity often seen in clinical settings and may be uniquely suited to do so, given its emphasis on transdiagnostic factors that contribute to the development and maintenance of emotional disorders (i.e., experience of strong negative emotions, aversive reactions to these emotions, and attempts to avoid or suppress these experiences). This chapter illustrates the use of the UP with a patient who presented with panic disorder, agoraphobia, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), major depressive disorder (MDD), and other specified attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This case is used to illustrate the application of the UP transdiagnostic framework to a case with extensive comorbidity.
