Mentalization based treatment for BPD (2 days - 23 Oct & 20 Nov)
Mon. 23 October 2017, 9:30 am – 4:30 pm AEDT
2 day workshop - Monday 23 October and Monday 20 November
This 2-day workshop will provide an introduction to the essentials of mentalization based treatment (MBT). MBT draws upon readily useable treatment ideas and practices that can be easily integrated into everyday clinical care provided by the full range of 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. The training will cover the theoretical underpinnings of the approach, describe and illustrate its therapeutic techniques, and practise skills for the application of MBT in a clinical setting. Participants should attend both sessions.
