Mentalization based treatment for BPD - 2 day Workshop Time: 9.30 to 4.30 pm, Spectrum, Thursday, 05. December 2019

Mentalization based treatment for BPD - 2 days workshop in November - Thursday 5th and Friday 6th December 2019
This two-day workshop will provide an introduction to the essentials of mentalization-based treatment (MBT) for borderline personality disorder. MBT draws upon readily useable treatment ideas and practices that can be easily integrated into everyday clinical care across all health disciplines. The approach has been shown to be effective in achieving sustainable remission in BPD and is now being used at a number of centres throughout the world. This training will cover the theoretical underpinnings of MBT, describe and illustrate its therapeutic techniques, and practise skills for the application of MBT in the clinical setting.
