Our next exciting opportunity:
“Mentalizing in Clinical Practice: lessons from MBT and AMBIT”
These teaching and training sessions by Dr Dickon Bevington (Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, CPFT and Medical Director, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families) will contain a mixture of didactic teaching (slides, videos), group discussions, and active participatory workshop practice sessions. All attendees are expected to take part in the latter (there are no ‘spectating only’ places!) but - to reassure those people who don’t like practical exercises - it is emphasised that any role-playing or live practice is always and only set up in playful and non-exposing ways – public humiliation is not a recognised method of teaching, and is never used! The curriculum will cover:
- Key Theory and Research underpinning the field of mentalization – what is it, how does it arise, why does it matter and how can this understanding be put to good use?
- Theory and Practice around the ‘Therapist’s Mentalizing Stance’
- Applying the mentalizing stance in work with individuals and families
- Applying mentalization to work in Teams, and across Systems (AMBIT)
Please Note: this is not a formally accredited training in MBT, but by the end of the course the trainees should have a sufficient grasp of theory and practice to apply mentalizing alongside other models in their clinical practice.
