Mentalization-Based Treatment

What is MBT?

Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT) is an evidence-based clinical method applied to help individuals grow his/her capacity to mentalize, thus to better understand thoughts, behaviours, intentions, and emotions of others and ourselves in order to improve the quality of our interpersonal relationships.

How do we proceed?

  1. Initial meetings: What are the difficulties you face? What are the issues at home/ work? What would you like to improve in your life? We’ll take 2-3 sessions to understand the issues to be treated, including the discussion of weather or not the method is appropriate for the issues raised.
  2. Formulating the issues: We will then continue our discussion, now specifying the recurrent issues and formulate the pattern of such problems in order to set a clear and common target of our work together.
  3. Sessions and revisions: We’ll start our work applying specific method of MBT for 20 sessions (weekly session for about 5 months) and revise our work to decide whether or not the further treatment will be necessary.
