Professor Bateman and Professor Fonagy developed MBT based on studies of early childhood development and attachment. The MBT model has become recognised as a highly effective treatment approach for borderline personality disorders (BPD).

Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT) is now one of the two evidence-based psychological treatments used for severe PD and is widely disseminated through MBT trainings at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families and practiced in the UK, Europe and the USA.

This practical guide to MBT for personality disorders outlines the mentalizing model and how it translates into clinical treatment. The book covers the aims and structure of treatment, how to discuss the model with patients, and recommended interventions, as well as describing the process of treatment in both group and individual therapy.

This is an invaluable guide for all mental health workers from the developers of MBT.
