Webinar from the 2011 International Association of Eating Disorders Professionals Symposium.
In this session, participants will learn the application of Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT) to eating disorders. Mentalization, the innate capacity to perceive and interpet the behaviors of self and other, is severely compromised in eating disordered patients. Following last year’s symposium workshop on the theoretical foundation of MBT, this session will focus on implementing mentalization in your clinical practice and will include short case presentations as well as demonstrations of group activities and games that enhance mentalization. Come learn mentalization interventions that add to your therapeutic skill set and your patient’s recovery.
