About this course
We are currently refining the structure of this training in an online format and so the times and dates may change slightly. Participants will be notified of any changes with sufficient notice.
In this course people will be able to get an overview of MBT-A; an understanding of the specific complexities about working with adolescents; an understanding of the development of mentalization and the relevance of it in relationships and in the maintenance of a self esteem, affect regulation and impulse control. The course will also touch on issues such as working with self harm, working with trauma and family work.
Who is this course suitable for?
All professionals working in the field of adolescent mental health.
This course will assume a working knowledge of the concept of mentalization. For those who have not previously completed an MBT training it is a requirement of this training must complete the An Introduction to Mentalization-Based Treatment for Children, Young People and Families training before the training start date. You will be given access to this training one month before the training start date. Please note access to the training will be granted once full payment is received. The self-directed online An Introduction to Mentalization-Based Treatment for Children, Young People and Families training consists of a series of short videos that span four hours and cover the theory of mentalization and its relevance to work with children and young people, and so it is essential that you watch these prior to the training. If you do not complete these, you will not have the theoretical knowledge to get the most out of the training you are scheduled to attend. The content of the training will not be covered in the in-person training. If, for any reason, you require access to the training sooner than one month prior to the training start date, please let us know and we will be able to grant you access. Please note that training places must be paid for in order to be granted access to the training.
