Mentalization-Based Treatment: Practitioner Level

Conference Center at Waltham Woods

Patients with borderline personality disorder present many challenges to clinicians. They require extensive mental health services and account for 20 percent of psychiatric hospitalizations. Many clinicians are unaware of new and effective treatments that have emerged and provide hope to patients and clinicians alike. Gaining knowledge and competence in these psychotherapies offers practicing clinicians the opportunity to improve their skills and effectively help these struggling individuals. One of the most promising of these therapies is mentalization-based treatment (MBT), which was developed based on studies of early childhood development and attachment.
