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.

The Use of Psychodrama and Action Techniques in the Therapeutic Dialogue

The one day workshop offers participants an introduction to Psychodrama, which is an action based psychotherapy method, developed together with the foundations of group psychotherapy. Although linked to theatre and drama, no acting skills are necessary or required to participate in Psychodrama. In contrast to other 'talking therapies', Psychodrama offers the opportunity to explore life experiences (past and present), relationships, emotions etc through use of dramatic action, rather than just talking about them. Psychodrama offers the opportunity to practice new roles safely, by facilitating insight, personal growth and intergration on a cognitive, affective and behavioural level.
