Mentalization-based therapy (MBT) is increasingly being considered as a treatment for people with borderline personality disorder (BPD), and a systematic review was required to investigate its effectiveness. MBT was found to be equally as effective or superior to well-established comparison treatments of BPD, however, the majority of studies were of unsatisfying quality.
This course is based on the article, Is mentalization-based therapy effective in treating the symptoms of borderline personality disorder? A systematic review created by Katharina Sophie Vogt, PhD. et al. in December of 2019.
Psychol Psychother. 2019 Dec;92(4):441-464. Dec 2019
