Mentalization based treatment was developed based on studies of early childhood development and attachment. This workshop is geared to senior clinicians in the community and will equip participants to understand:

• How mentalizing handicaps derive from early parent-child interactions
• How mentalizing failures reflect and cause insecure attachments
• How psychotherapeutic interventions are efforts to correct mentalizing and attachment handicaps

Participants will learn how to implement MBT techniques within their clinical practice as a specialist treatment. Techniques to be included that enhance mentalizing capacities include:

• The basic therapist stance of “not knowing”
• Basic mentalizing skills – validation, empathy, clarification, challenge, maintaining the mentalizing process
• Identifying the affect focus
• Mentalizing the transference – including working with counter transference

Objectives:

By the end of this conference, participants will:

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the mentalizing problems of borderline personality disorder

2. Recognize mentalizing and non-mentalizing interventions

3. Develop and maintain a mentalizing therapeutic stance

4. Be prepared to use basic mentalizing techniques in their everyday clinical work in groups and individual psychotherapy.

             Robin Kisell, M.D. & Daniel Kupper, Ph.D


The workshop is suitable for mental health and other professionals who are interested in the treatment of personality disorder and have already completed the basic training course. Participants are expected to have been using mentalizing skills in their everyday practice and when possible to have participated in supervision.

This two-day workshop will expand on previous knowledge and embed the basic skills of mentalization based treatment (MBT).

A maximum of 12.5 CME* and BBS credits will be available through this event.*

Conference Fee - $600.00**

Participants learn how to use the MBT adherence scale for individual therapy and hone their MBT skills through clinical demonstration, video ratings, and role plays.

Using video, participants demonstrate their use of basic interventions within a standardised scenario with an actor.  This may be used towards recognition of competence and access to supervision to become a supervisor.

Aims of course

To help participants embed and develop further their skills to treat patients with personality disorder using MBT, introduce the adherence scale for rating treatment sessions, and to introduce skills required to become a supervisor.
