WEBINAR 3 - CASE FORMULATION IN MENTALIZATION BASED TREATMENT
In developing and sharing an MBT case formulation we are in essence striving to capture what we have learnt through the assessment with the patient in a way that does not overwhelm them. Instead, we seek to establish a collaborative focus for the work in a way that is meaningful to the patient. Establishing this collaborative focus is vital to the work as is regular review. Discussion of considerations and tips for sharing formulations with individuals in therapy will be covered. Using multiple examples of mentalizing formulations we will discuss how key MBT concepts can be shared in plain language with patients.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR SERIES
This Webinar is the 3rd in a series of clinically focussed webinars which will provide a refresher for therapists who are implementing MBT and will focus on enhancing the application and understanding of key MBT interventions. Particular attention will be given to areas raised by therapists in MBT supervision. Our aim is to support therapists to feel more confident about stimulating mentalizing and maintaining a mentalizing stance. Participation in these webinars will provide the opportunity to explore these clinical issues more deeply within the framework of mentalizing supervision. These 90 minute webinars will share clinical examples and theoretical content to illustrate MBT principles. The format of each webinar will involve some presentation of material and some interactive discussion around the content. Participants will have an opportunity to interact with MBT accredited supervisors around these selected topics.
