The Unified Protocol for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders (UP) has demonstrated promising results among patients with heterogeneous anxiety and comorbid depressive disorders when delivered on an individual basis, but greater efficiencies may be achieved with group-based applications. This chapter will provide a rationale for utilizing a transdiagnostic approach in a group format, including cost-effectiveness and efficiency for patients and practitioners alike. It will illustrate a recent application of the UP with patients who completed 12 sessions in a group, offer guidelines on how to successfully implement the UP in a group of patients with a range of anxiety, depressive, and related disorders, and discuss the challenges that arose during treatment. We will then present data on the treatment response for each patient, as well as patients’ perceptions of the acceptability and feasibility of the UP in a group format, and conclude with our thoughts on future research priorities.
