Mentalization-Based Therapy: An Evidence-Based Psychotherapy
for Clients with Borderline Personality Disorder
Presenter: Robert P. Drozek, LICSW
Mentalization-Based Therapy (or MBT) is an evidence-based psychotherapy shown to be effective for treating clients with borderline and other personality disorders. Based on concepts and principles from attachment theory, psychoanalysis, and developmental psychology, MBT utilizes the collaborative therapeutic relationship to strengthen the person’s ability to understand and experience their own subjective states, and to accurately perceive the subjective states of others. This presentation will outline MBT’s theories, principles for clinical intervention, and applications of these principles to clinical work. Case examples will be shared from MBT with military veterans, and attendees will observe and practice MBT in the context of role-plays.
Robert P. Drozek, LICSW practices psychotherapy and social work at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital as the Social Work Supervisor for Mental Health. He specializes in the treatment of personality disorders, and has extensive experience providing individual and group Mentalization-Based Therapy (MBT) to military veterans. He has received Advanced Training in MBT from the developers of the therapy, and has published on the concept of mentalization in Psychoanalytic Dialogues: The International Journal of Relational Perspectives. He is a graduate of the Fellowship in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute.
