Introduction to Mentalizing in Practice

Course Code
Course Types
Mentalizing is developmental capacity that develops through our relationships with others. It is a “form of imaginative mental activity about others and oneself, namely perceiving and interpreting human behaviour in terms of intentional mental states (e.g. needs, desires, beliefs, goals and reasons)” Fonagy, Target, Steele & Steele (1998). This approach is relevant for both us as practitioners, but also for the families we work with. After the training you will then have the opportunity to join the Mentalizing and AMBIT Community of Practice.

This course is for FCL and CAHMS staff doing direct work.
