Abstract
The present study had several aims: 1) assessing anxiety levels and emotion regulation strategies in two groups of individuals diagnosed with bipolar disorder when receiving treatment with Unified Protocol (UP) in a group format, 2) investigating whether participants reached clinically significant levels of improvement regarding emotion regulation and anxiety post treatment, 3) investigating participants’ expectations prior to treatment, to what degree the treatment was found helpful and what elements that was found helpful.
A case series design was used. Anxiety and emotion regulation problems were measured with the Overall Anxiety Severity and Impairment Scale (OASIS) and the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS). Clinical... (More)

A case series design was used. Anxiety and emotion regulation problems were measured with the Overall Anxiety Severity and Impairment Scale (OASIS) and the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS). Clinical significance and reliable change were measured with the Reliable Change Index (RCI) and assessments of anxiety and emotion regulation were evaluated in comparison with cut-off-values for non-clinical and clinical populations. Participants’ expectations and evaluations of treatment were measured with questionnaires specifically constructed for the present study. The result shows that most of the participants showed positive changes under the treatment. Whether UP delivered in a group format is a viable treatment option for the larger population of individuals with bipolar disorder can not be answered by the present study but must be investigated in larger randomised controlled studies.

Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med den aktuella studien var flerfaldigt: 1) undersöka ångestnivåer och emotionsregleringsstrategier i två grupper av individer med bipolär sjukdom (n = 13) i samband med gruppbehandling med Unified Protocol, 2) undersöka om deltagarna skattade en klinisk signifikant minskning av svårigheter avseende emotionsreglering samt ångestnivå efter behandlingen, 3) undersöka deltagarnas förväntningar inför behandlingen samt upplevd grad av användbarhet i behandlingen som helhet samt om vissa element uppfattades som mer hjälpsamma.
I den aktuella studien användes en case series-design. Overall Anxiety Severity and Impairment Scale (OASIS) och Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS) användes för skattning av ångestnivåer samt... (More)

I den aktuella studien användes en case series-design. Overall Anxiety Severity and Impairment Scale (OASIS) och Emotion Regulation Scale (DERS) användes för skattning av ångestnivåer samt emotionsregleringsproblem. Klinisk signifikans och reliabel förändring mättes med Reliable Change Index (RCI) och hur skattningarna låg i relation till uppsatta cut-off-värden för icke-klinisk respektive klinisk population utvärderades. Resultatet visade att flertalet av deltagarna uppvisade förändringar i positiv riktning under behandlingen. Huruvida UP i gruppformat kan vara en lämplig intervention för den allmänna populationen personer med bipolär sjukdom behöver undersökas i större randomiserade studier. (Less)
