MBT-A Training Programme
MBT-A Training Steps
Mentalization-Based Treatment for Adolescence (MBT-A) training programme aims to equip mental health and other professionals working with adolescents with the necessary skills to practice MBT-A. Individuals can also be trained to a supervisor level.
1. MBT-A training
The MBT-A course is aimed at practitioners working with adolescents and gives an overview of MBT-A; an understanding of the specific complexities about working with adolescents; an understanding of the development of mentalization and the relevance of it in relationships and in the maintenance of a self esteem, affect regulation and impulse control. The course will also touch on issues such as working with self harm, working with trauma and family work.
2. MBT-A practice
Following attendance at the MBT-A training trainees are permitted to practice MBT-A but this should be done under supervision from an MBT-A supervisor.
The list of accredited supervisors can be found here.
3. MBT-A Supervisor training
The MBT-A Supervisor training will equip anyone who uses MBT-A in their practice with supervision skills in MBT-A, with the aim of supervising others.
Applicants must have attended the two-day MBT-A training and had clinical experience of working with MBT-A for at least one year.
The workshop will conclude with a supervisory task and those who’s skills are on model, will be accredited as supervisors.
