Steven Krugman, Ph.D. and Nancy Lundy, Ed.D., instructors
This is the second of a two part
program designed by Anthony Bateman and colleagues at the Anna Freud Centre in
London to teach mentalization treatment skills to clinicians.
This program focuses on acquiring the
clinical skills to utilize the mentalization model in working with patients of
many kinds. Clinicians will learn to recognize “good” mentalizing as well as non-mentalistic
types of thinking. We will introduce and explore a key feature of the treatment
model – the Mentalizing Stance. Participants will demonstrate and practice this
central therapeutic orientation and explore its impact on the patient;
introduce, in a stepwise manner, interventions aimed at increasing and
enhancing mentalization; and explore the possibility of mentalizing the
therapeutic relationship. Please NOTE: Part
I (or its equivalent) is a pre-requisite for Part II.
Upon completion of the program the student will be able to:
· Implement a mentalizing stance with patients
· Recognize nonmentalizing and consider approaches to restore mentalizing
· Identify areas of their clinical practice which are
enhanced by mentalizing techniques
