Mentalisation-Based Treatment Approaches In Support Settings
Learn a highly effective approach for interactions with service users, that can also be adopted as a coherent psychological framework
Mentalisation-Based Treatment (MBT) is an attachment-based therapeutic approach originally developed for working with Personality Disorder and now more widely evidence-based. This approach enhances emotion regulation and relationship management through an enhanced understanding of oneself and others. This course will enable to you to spot when someone may have stopped mentalizing, adopt a mentalizing stance, help them regain their ability to mentalize and consequently aims to reduce impulsivity, risky behaviour, self-harm, aggression and distress. MBT is a highly effective approach for all interactions with service users and colleagues and can also be adopted effectively as a coherent psychological framework in PIEs.
