Mentalization Skills for Mental Health Professionals: Understanding Mentalization

Nov 16, 2012 09:00am -
Nov 16, 2012 04:30pm

Event Description

Steven Krugman, Ph.D. and Nancy Lundy, Ed.D., instructors

This is the first 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 offers clinicians at all levels an opportunity to learn about mentalization as a developmental phenomenon and cognitive capacity and to understand its key role in emotional and social intelligence. Participants will explore the concept and related ideas (.e.g. empathy, theory of mind, mindfulness). The psychological development of mentalizing as a cognitive function will be examined, particularly in its relation to neurobiology, attachment, affect regulation and personality development. Mentalization as a factor in anxiety and trauma, personality disorders and depression will be discussed.  Part I can be taken as a complete program or as an introduction to the two part series.

Upon completion of the program the student will be able to:

·         Explain what mentalizing is and how it develops

·        Implement a mentalizing stance with patients

·        Recognize nonmentalizing and consider approaches to restore mentalizing

Program Code: MT65
