The AMBIT Client Skills workshops are for AMBIT-trained individuals or teams and provide evidence-based theory and practical skills for working with specific issues, in AMBIT-influenced ways. 

This is a half-day workshop to increase workers skills in applying mentalizing to both direct and indirect work with families, and is particularly aimed at those who work in AMBIT-influenced teams. It aims to broaden worker’s perspectives on how they might hold families in mind and develop confidence in applying mentalization-based skills and the mentalizing stance to family work in practical ways.  

Please note that whilst this course teaches mentalization-based skills for working with families, it does not constitute a training in MBT-F. Training in MBT-F can be booked separately through the centre. 

This is a live online training, with trainers present throughout. The training consists of an engaging combination of live teaching, group discussion, skills practice, and interactive online activities.
