Mentalization-based child therapy, previously known as developmental therapy, is the latest branch on the psychoanalytic tree of knowledge. It comprises a number of techniques that address deficiencies in specific areas of psychological development. It aims to treat children whose development has come to a standstill. A combination of data from psychoanalysis, infant research, attachment research, and neurobiology was of decisive significance in reaching this point. It is becoming clear that neurobiological processes can be understood very well on the basis of psychoanalytic frameworks. These new insights into peoples mental functioning also serve to foster collaboration, resulting in an integration of the more relationship-oriented and the more competence oriented treatments. This book aims to fill a growing need in mental health care for children and young people to recieve an integrated treatment.

El estudio del apego ha producido importantes descubrimientos acerca de las relaciones entre padres e hijos y la psicopatología. Sin embargo, hasta hace muy poco tiempo los terapeutas desistían en gran medida de sacar sus propias conclusiones acerca de las aplicaciones clínicas de este creciente campo del conocimiento. En este elocuente libro, David J. Wallin traduce la teoría y la investigación del apego en un marco innovador que fundamenta la psicoterapia de adultos en los acontecimientos de la niñez. Revelador, práctico y de fácil lectura, este volumen ofrece nuevas ideas sobre el papel del terapeuta, así como recomendaciones claras para su práctica diaria. El libro comienza con una revisión de la literatura sobre el apego, destacando el impacto de las experiencias tempranas sobre la salud mental de los adultos y sus relaciones. Mediante la integración de los principios fundamentales del apego con la neurociencia, los estudios del trauma, la psicoterapia relacional y la atención plena, Wallin propone un modelo de tratamiento de transformación a través de la relación, que ayude al lector a comprender mejor y tratar una serie de problemas que se presentan, incluyendo depresión, ansiedad, problemas de relación o tendencias suicidas. Al mostrar los usos clínicos de un enfoque basado en la interacción verbal, el libro describe poderosas técnicas para trabajar con las respuestas emocionales de los pacientes y con sus experiencias corporales. También explora cómo los terapeutas pueden usar su propia experiencia subjetiva, la conciencia plena y la atención al cuerpo para brindar experiencias iluminadoras a sus pacientes. Al sintetizar ideas y resultados de algunas de las áreas más activas de la investigación psicológica contemporánea -y darles impulso con empatía y sabiduría clínica- este volumen será una lectura muy valiosa para psicoterapeutas de adultos, psicólogos clínicos, psiquiatras, trabajadores sociales y estudiantes de Psicología. El doctor David J. Wallin es un psicólogo clínico que ejerce la medicina privada en Mill Valley y Albany, California. Licenciado por el Harvard College y doctor por el Wright Institute de Berkeley, California, lleva casi tres décadas ejerciendo, enseñando y divulgando la psicoterapia. El Dr. Wallin es coautor (junto con Stephen Goldbart) de Mapping the terrain of the heart: passion, tenderness and the capacity to love.

Mentalizing - the ability to understand oneself and others by inferring the mental states that lie behind overt behavior - develops during childhood within the context of a secure attachment relationship. It is crucial to self-regulation and constructive, intimate relationships. Failure to retain mentalizing, particularly in the midst of emotional interactions, is a core problem in borderline personality disorder and results in severe emotional fluctuations,impulsivity, and vulnerability to interpersonal and social interactions. Mentalization-based treatment for borderline personality disorder is a How to Do It book outlining a clinically proven treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder. Containing illustrative clinical examples, it details precisely how to develop and implement treatment and is a companion to the highly successful book Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality Disorder - mentalization based treatment.This practical guide explains how to treat borderline patients by helping them develop a more robust mentalizing capacity within the context of an attachment relationship. It provides the practitioner with everything they need to know about how to practise mentalizing treatment in day patient and out-patient settings. Enough theory is provided to orientate the clinician and there is step-by-step practical advice on the assessment of mentalizing and interpersonal relationships, how to structuretreatment, the use of basic mentalizing interventions and how to apply them, as well as information on what not to do. In addition, it includes a check list to be used in the assessment of mentalizing and a self-rating exercise for practitioners to evaluate their adherence tomentalizing.

This is the first book to describe Adaptive Mentalization-Based Integrative Treatment (AMBIT). This is an approach to working with people - particularly young people and young adults - whose lives are often chaotic and risky, and whose problems are not limited to one domain. In addition to mental health problems, they may have problems with care arrangements, education or employment, exploitation, substance misuse, offending behaviours, and gang affiliations; ifthese problems are all occurring simultaneously, any progress in one area is easily undermined by harms still occurring in another.

Pioneering research has been carried out over the last decade on mentalization and the promotion of mentalizing capacity - the ability to interpret the behavior of oneself and others as based on intentional mental states, such as needs, desires, feelings, and beliefs. This book is a consolidation of current knowledge and clinical applications, bringing together a group of international experts who have been on the ground floor of theory and research to clarify the concept, review pertinent neurobiological and psychosocial research, and explore its diverse clinical applications. Four sections will cover Conceptual Foundations, Developmental Psychopathology, Intervention and Prevention. A biopsychosocial approach will be used, integrating new research in neuroimaging with psychodynamic and cognitive perspectives. Clinical issues covered will include parent–child interactions, personality disorders, traumatic brain injury, bullying and at-risk children.

What is 'mentalization'? How can this concept be applied to clinical work with children, young people and families? What will help therapists working with children and families to 'keep the mind in mind'? Why does it matter if a parent can 'see themselves from the outside, and their child from the inside'? Minding the Child considers the implications of the concept of mentalization for a range of therapeutic interventions with children and families. Mentalization, and the empirical research which has supported it, now plays a significant role in a range of psychotherapies for adults. In this book we see how these rich ideas about the development of the self and interpersonal relatedness can help to foster the emotional well-being of children and young people in clinical practice and a range of other settings. With contributions from a range of international experts, the three main sections of the book explore: • the concept of mentalization from a theoretical and research perspective • the value of mentalization-based interventions within child mental health services • the application of mentalizing ideas to work in community settings. Minding the Child will be of particular interest to clinicians and those working therapeutically with children and families, but it will also be of interest to academics and students interested in child and adolescent mental health, developmental psychology and the study of social cognition.

This book describes the use of therapeutic art, music, and dance interventions against a background of mentalization, thus forging a link between arts therapies and mentalization-based treatment. This book has its roots in the theory of Mentalization Based Treatment by Antony Bateman and Peter Fonagy, and combines the broad experience of many art therapists with art, music and dance/movement therapy in psychiatric settings in the treatment of adults and adolescents both individually and in groups, as well as children with disorganised attachment. As a treatment concept, mentalization is quite straightforward because mentalizing is a typically human ability. As Bateman and Fonagy (2012) say: "Without mentalizing there can be no robust sense of self, no constructive social interaction, no mutuality in relationships, and no sense of personal security". On the other hand, it is not so simple to fully grasp the significance of mentalization. Mentalization-based therapy is a specific type of psychotherapy designed to help people reflect on their own thoughts and feelings and differentiate them from the perspectives of others.

Winner of the 2003 Gradiva Award and the 2003 Goethe Award for Psychoanalytic Scholarship Arguing for the importance of attachment and emotionality in the developing human consciousness, four prominent analysts explore and refine the concepts of mentalization and affect regulation. Their bold, energetic, and encouraging vision for psychoanalytic treatment combines elements of developmental psychology, attachment theory, and psychoanalytic technique. Drawing extensively on case studies and recent analytic literature to illustrate their ideas, Fonagy, Gergely, Jurist, and Target offer models of psychotherapy practice that can enable the gradual development of mentalization and affect regulation even in patients with long histories of violence or neglect.

MÁS ALLÁ DE LA POLÉMICA ALREDEDOR DEL ABUSO SEXUAL Y FÍSICO, Jill Savege Scharff y David E. Scharff ofrecen una perspectiva relacional a la integración de teorías sobre psicoanálisis y traumas para entender el abrumador efecto de los traumas físicos y sexuales, incluyendo el abuso sexual, las lesiones y los defectos de nacimiento. Los Scharff sustentan este trabajo en su experiencia clínica como terapeutas de individuos, familias y parejas en recuperación y presentan una multitud de casos narrados por los mismos pacientes. Su acercamiento a la terapia es absolutamente respetuoso con la experiencia de estos pacientes. “Una detallada síntesis de teorías pasadas y presentes con enfoques prácticos clínicos de pacientes traumatizados. Mediante la introducción de una perspectiva histórica en los temas conceptuales y políticos del abuso sexual y físico, y una explicación sincera sobre sus propias reacciones, los autores contextualizan profusamente sus intervenciones terapéuticas y de contratransferencia. Analizan destacados dilemas sobre tratamientos, así como polémicos asuntos sociopolíticos como los ‘falsos recuerdos’, de manera abierta y concienzuda. Es una importante fuente de ideas e inspiración para psicoterapeutas que trabajan en esta área”. Dr. Frank W. Putnam, Unidad de Trastornos Disociativos del Instituto Nacional de Salud Mental (EEUU)
