Peter Fonagy, Anna Freud Centre Chief Executive: What is Mentalization? Interview

Executive Producer:
Peter Fonagy

Mentalizing refers to our ability to attend to mental states in ourselves and in others as we attempt to understand our own actions and those of others on the basis of intentional mental states. A focus on this very human activity as a therapeutic intervention forms the core of mentalization based treatment (MBT). MBT was initially developed for the treatment of borderline personality disorder (BPD) although it is now being used on a wide range of disorders.

Anna Freud Centre Chief Executive Peter Fonagy talks more about Mentalization in the interview.
