Mentalization-Based Treatment: Certificate Course - Practitioner Level

In this two-day workshop, you will expand previous knowledge, embed the basic skills of Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT), and enhance your expertise through hands-on demos and role plays.

About this training

The new MBT Certificate course - practitioner level one-month course is made up of two days of live, instructor-led content (10am-4pm, with breaks) and 21 hours of self-guided content. You will also be required to do various tasks before, in-between and after the live, instructor-led sessions. This may require you to demonstrate your own use of basic MBT interventions via video/audio and other role play exercises. 

Aims of the training 

The aim of this intensive one-month training is designed to help you work towards MBT Practitioner Level B.  

Who is this training for? 

The workshop is suitable for mental health and other professionals who are interested in the treatment of personality disorder and have already completed the basic MBT training course.  

You are expected to have been using mentalizing skills in your everyday practice and to have participated in supervision. In terms of the Quality Assurance Manual, you should also be working towards Level B (practitioner status). 


The quality of the workshop was as excellent as expected. I really enjoyed it and found both the practical part (discussion of cases/videos) and theoretical part very helpful. Participant, February 2017
