Abstract
Depression and anxiety disorders have increased throughout the youth population, comorbidity is common, which increases the need for multimodal evidence-based treatment methods. One example is the Unified Protocol (UP), which focuses on transdiagnostic mechanisms in emotional disturbances. The purpose of the study was to evaluate UP in group format for adolescents with depression and anxiety disorders at a BUP clinic in northern Sweden. Seven girls aged 15-17 years participated in group treatment. The study explored how depression and anxiety symptoms with related functional impairments reduced over time, if there were similarities in the symptoms of depression and anxiety for each participant, as well as whether parental estimation showed...

Depression and anxiety disorders have increased throughout the youth population, comorbidity is common, which increases the need for multimodal evidence-based treatment methods.

The purpose of the study was to evaluate UP in group format for adolescents with depression and anxiety disorders at a BUP clinic in northern Sweden. Seven girls aged 15-17 years participated in group treatment. The study explored how depression and anxiety symptoms with related functional impairments reduced over time, if there were similarities in the symptoms of depression and anxiety for each participant, as well as whether parental estimation showed reduced symptoms and functional impairments. The results showed significant reductions in mental depression symptoms and impairment from pre-measurement to follow-up measurement but from pre-measurement to post-measurement, the decrease was not significant for either mental depression symptoms or functional impairments. Estimation of mental anxiety symptoms and functional impairments showed no significant reduction in psychiatric symptoms over time, however, the decrease was significant over time in the case of functional impairments. It is not possible to draw any general conclusion from the results of the study due to low number of participants, but the results indicate that the method of treatment is worth developing further.

Abstract (Swedish)
Depressioner och ångestsyndrom har ökat i hela ungdomspopulationen, samsjuklighet är vanligt vilket ökar behovet av multimodala evidensbaserade behandlingsmetoder. Ett exempel är Unified Protocol (UP) som fokuserar på transdiagnostiska kärnmekanismer vid emotionella störningar. Syftet med uppsatsen var att utvärdera UP i gruppformat för ungdomar med depressions- och ångeststörningar vid en BUP-mottagning i norra Sverige. Sju flickor i åldrarna 15-17 år deltog i gruppbehandlingen. Studien studerade om depressions- och ångestsymtom med relaterad funktionsnedsättning minskat över tid, om det fanns likheter i symtomutvecklingen för depression och ångest hos respektive deltagare samt om föräldraskattning visade minskade symtom och...

Depressioner och ångestsyndrom har ökat i hela ungdomspopulationen, samsjuklighet är vanligt vilket ökar behovet av multimodala evidensbaserade behandlingsmetoder. Ett exempel är Unified Protocol (UP) som fokuserar på transdiagnostiska kärnmekanismer vid emotionella störningar. Syftet med uppsatsen var att utvärdera UP i gruppformat för ungdomar med depressions- och ångeststörningar vid en BUP-mottagning i norra Sverige. Sju flickor i åldrarna 15-17 år deltog i gruppbehandlingen. Studien studerade om depressions- och ångestsymtom med relaterad funktionsnedsättning minskat över tid, om det fanns likheter i symtomutvecklingen för depression och ångest hos respektive deltagare samt om föräldraskattning visade minskade symtom och funktionsnedsättning. Resultaten visade en signifikant minskning av psykiska depressionssymtom och funktionsnedsättning från förmätning till uppföljande mätning men från förmätning till eftermätning var minskningen ej signifikant för vare sig psykiska depressionssymtom eller funktionsnedsättning. Skattning av psykiska ångestsymtom och funktionsnedsättning visade ingen signifikant minskning av psykiska symtom över tid, däremot var minskningen signifikant över tid när det gällde funktionsnedsättning. Det går inte att dra några generella slutsatser av resultaten från studien p.g.a. lågt deltagarantal, men resultaten tyder på att behandlingsformen är värd att utveckla vidare. (Less)
