Mentalization-Based Treatment for Children: A Time-Limited Approach

  • City College - NAC 1-211 (map)

This course covers an introduction to the concept of mentalizing, and its use in clinical work with children in middle childhood (5-12) and their parents. It will provide an overview of the development of mentalizing in middle childhood, and how it can be assessed; an introduction to a time-limited model of MBT-C; and will give opportunities to practice specific skills for working with children from a mentalizing perspective, as well as the parallel work with parents.This is the first step in becoming certified as an MBT-C therapist.
