The roots of mentalization are in psychoanalytic practice and over the years this has developed into more modern dimensions evolving into a distinctive research tool and effective approach to counselling and psychotherapy. In this webinar we will visit the roots of mentalization to put it into context and then consider how you can use this approach to enhance your own work and effectiveness in the therapy room.
We will be looking at:
- Operationalizing Mentalization through Reflective Functioning (RF): Grasp the practical aspects of mentalization through the Reflective Functioning Scale, a tool developed by Fonagy and colleagues for interpreting one's own and others' behaviour in terms of underlying mental states.
- Application in Clinical Settings: Explore the application of mentalization in clinical contexts, bridging the gap between theory and practice.
- Learn how mentalization contributes to affect regulation, impulse control, and the overall organization of the self.
- Connection to Attachment Theory: Understand the direct link between mentalization and attachment theory, with a focus on adult attachment interviews.
