Mentalizing in Psychotherapy

This course is for health pro­fes­sion­als treat­ing bor­der­line per­son­al­i­ty, self-harm, sub­stance abuse, eat­ing dis­or­ders or inter­per­son­al trau­ma. It is par­tic­u­lar­ly rel­e­vant in work with ado­les­cents and your adults who have not improved with oth­er treat­ments. Men­tal­iz­ing is a flex­i­ble approach: it can be com­bined with oth­er inter­ven­tions and is root­ed in psy­cho­log­i­cal devel­op­ment, neu­ro-biol­o­gy, social cog­ni­tion and attach­ment the­o­ry. As a method men­tal­iz­ing is intro­duc­ing a fresh, empir­i­cal­ly — sup­port­ed view of inter­per­son­al func­tion­ing and self reg­u­la­tion. The­o­ry and tech­niques will be presented.
