Training at KCPS
Avril Leonard who works as a Psychotherapist at The Brenchley Unit will teach us in depth about Mentalization.
The overall aim of Mentalization-Based Treatment is to develop a therapeutic process in which the mind of the patient becomes the focus of treatment. The focus is on the patient finding out more about how she/he thinks and feels about him/herself and others, how that influences responses to self and others and how "errors" in understanding lead to actions in an attempt to retain or regain emotional stability and to make sense of incomprehensible feelings.
The model was developed for working with Borderline Personality Disorder but the skills course has a broader applicability too.
The core focus of the treatment is relational.
The training will make for interesting learning and lively discussion.
