Mentalization as a therapeutic concept was developed by Peter Fonagy, Anthony Bateman and others as a means of understanding and treating patients with borderline personality disorders. It is becoming increasingly apparent that it is also advantageous to pay attention to mentalization deficits in connection with other disorders, such as depression, anxiety, eating and somatisation disorders. The focus on mentalization can be extraordinarily useful in all therapy methods. It has been proven helpful for patients with mentalization disorders to overcome them. A prerequisite, however, is that psychotherapists also mentalize. In the workshop the development of the mentalization model and its further theoretical developments are presented as „work in progress“. In videos, role plays and supervisions of own patients, competences and procedures are practiced in order to regain or maintain mentalization.
