Chapter 8 of the Unified Protocols for Transdiagnostic Treatment of Emotional Disorders in Children: Workbook (UP-C) focuses on emotional awareness by teaching a new Emotion Detective skill to experience feelings while learning three present-moment awareness steps— learning to pay attention to what is going on in the present moment without thinking about the past or the future, experiencing feelings without avoiding them or doing something to make them go away, and beginning to approach or face things or situations the child has been avoiding in the past because they make the child feel scared, sad, angry, or worried. Child clients practice these present-moment awareness steps using their five senses, and they also learn about and practice non-judgmental awareness.
