About this course

As you will be aware, places to attend the conference in person on 7th December sold out quite quickly. In reaction to the high demand, we have secured online live streaming access for those who were unable to book a place to attend in person. By booking a place on this page, you will be granted access to watch a live stream of the conference on the 7th December remotely. There are still places available on the 8th December should you wish to book a place on the second day to attend in person.

We will be bringing together world-renowned MBT researchers and clinicians working with a range of populations; children, adolescents, families, adults and teams.

This conference is divided into two days which are booked separately due to venue restrictions:

  • Day one will be held on Thursday, 7th December and will focus on the clinical application of MBT and is limited to 150 delegates
  • Day two will be held on Friday, 8th December and will focus on recent advances in MBT and is limited to 300 delegates. Tickets for this day can be booked here Recent Advances in MBT

Bookings on to the live stream do not grant access to the wine reception on Thursday, 7th December.

Mentalizing refers to our ability to attend to mental states in ourselves and in others as we attempt to understand our own actions and those of others on the basis of intentional mental states. If we are mentalizing successfully, we are able to understand what is going on in our own minds and in the minds of other people, and realise how this is effecting the emotions, thoughts, and actions of ourselves and others. This understanding of our own perspectives as well as those of other people leads to more successful interactions and social relationships.

Teaching individuals to mentalize as a therapeutic intervention forms the core of Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT). This evidence-based treatment has been shown to be highly effective in treating Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), and as a result has gained national and international attention.

MBT was initially developed for the treatment of BPD, but it is now being used for a wide range of disorders. This conference will explore the clinical application of MBT across different groups.
