Free Bite-Sized Training: AMBIT (Adaptive Mentalization Based Integrative Treatment)
Thursday 19th May 2022 12:00 - 13:00
About this webinar
Join us for this free bite-sized training session for anyone developing, or working through family hubs, or the Supporting Families programme, where we will explore the AMBIT (Adaptive Mentalization Based Integrative Treatment) approach and whole family working.
AMBIT developed here at the Anna Freud Centre, is an approach to helping people who have multiple needs, and consequently the involvement of multiple agencies. It is often applied to helping those whose adaptive responses to experiences of trauma, exclusion and marginalisation have left them – understandably – reluctant to trust in others, including helping services. It works by privileging the existing relationships of trust and organising the network to come around these key workers to support them in their helping relationship, through a ‘team around the worker’ approach.
AMBIT assumes that working alongside people who are experiencing significant distress can cause breakdowns in mentalizing, the human capacity for making sense of behaviour by considering the mind that is driving the behaviour, and that this will impact on the effectiveness of the help we provide. AMBIT helps workers to apply mentalizing in: Direct work with clients; How we function and support one another in teams; How we integrate and make sense of complex helping networks; How teams and systems can maintain a culture of learning and adaptation.
There will be automatic subtitles available during this event.
