    Mentalization-based Treatment (MBT) has become increasingly recognized as a valuable conceptual framework to guide psychodynamically oriented psychotherapy for individuals with complicated psychiatric issues. Developed by Anthony Bateman and Peter Fonagy, MBT emphasizes the importance of the attachment process in early development and helps individuals recover from the consequences of serious disruptions in attachment. This evidence based approach has been shown to be helpful in addressing problems associated with emotion dysregulation the interventions are simple to learn and can be used in the context of many different kinds of therapeutic intervention. This educational activity will outline basic techniques related to establishing and maintaining a mentalizing stance in therapeutic relationships.

    At the conclusion of this live presentation, participants should be able to:

    • Describe how Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT) grounded in Attachment Theory impacts persistent psychological distress.
    • Articulate a selection of techniques, skills and theoretical principles used in MBT in treatment with individuals and families.
    • Briefly practice some techniques in the context of role plays following an observation of a therapeutic interaction.
