Mentalization Skills for Mental Health Professionals: Clinical Applications

Nov 30, 2012 09:00am -
Nov 30, 2012 04:30pm

Event Description

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

Program Code: MT66
