Metalization Based Treatment for Families.

What is MBT-F?

Mentalization Based Treatment for Families (MBT-F) is based on mentalizing, or understanding the mental state, of families to achieve better communication, decrease the number of disagreements and reduce stress. Mentalization refers to our capacity to make sense of thoughts, feelings and behaviours for our own experiences as well as those around us. The evidence based approach of MBT-F brings together attachment theory, systemic theory, CBT practices and a social ecological framework to understand and work with families.  Used in a clinical setting, MBT-F can address challenges in families such as emotional and behavioural problems, anxiety, eating difficultiesdepression and conflict in relationships
