I'm proud to announce a pilot program I'm calling 30 Days of Mentalizing, which will begin on June 1.
This peer-led psychoeducation opportunity will allow participants to learn about Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT)—an evidenced-based therapy. Through a daily e-mail, subscribers will encouraged to engage in a variety of activities that help promote mentalizing—the ability to better understand our own thoughts and emotions and those of others.
MBT was originally created to treat borderline personality disorder but has now been adapted to help family members of those diagnosed with BPD. Valerie Porr—author of Overcoming Borderline Personality Disorder: A Family Guide to Healing and Change—has even called MBT the "missing piece" of dialectical behavior therapy.
Increasing our capacity to mentalize may help us to:
• develop our social cognition skills
• begin to eliminate misunderstandings with those we care about
• be more aware of how our behaviors can affect others
• connect in more meaningful ways
• better understand our world
Please note that 30 Days of Mentalizing is not a therapy program nor is it intended to be a substitute for treatment, care or consultation with a licensed healthcare professional. If you are wondering if this psychoeducation program may be appropriate for you, please ask your healthcare provider.
The pilot is limited to 30 participants and will be just $15. To subscribe, click here and sign up by May 30, 2013. Subscribers will be asked to fill out an optional and anonymous survey at the end of pilot.
