Mentalising Based Treatment (MBT)

Helping your stuck clients with insight and self-regulation

Mentalising is one of the most taken-for-granted, least distinctive phenomena that might occur in our day-to-day lives, and more relevantly, in our therapeutic conversations.
When it’s happening well, we relate to ourselves and others flexibly and creatively, human behaviours appear predictable, and making meaning in our lives is possible…and when it is absent, well…you get the picture.

In this bonus on-demand training, you’ll explore MBT and get a chance to understand, build and encourage interventions that aim to strengthen this capacity in your clinical work.

Your certification training is led by…
