Are you looking for a novel approach to treating emotional dysregulation in young adults?

There is a demonstrated link between the mental health and substance use comorbidities experienced by young adults, however the vast majority of psychological interventions are disorder specific. Novel psychological approaches that adequately acknowledge the psychosocial complexity and transdiagnostic needs of vulnerable young people are urgently needed. A modular skills-based program for emotion regulation and impulse control (ERIC) addresses this gap.

The content of this pub discussion will focus on the development and evaluation of ERIC. Results from a one-armed open trial designed to evaluate the impact that 12 weeks exposure to ERIC alongside usual care will be presented along with related literature on the emotion regulation profiles of treatment seeking young adults. Transdiagnostic treatment targets for cognitive and behavioural intervention will be presented.

About this event:
