Complexities in Personality Disorder: A Mentalization-Based Treatment (MBT) Approach

Clinical experience and clinical experience and contemporary research acknowledge the complexities that can arise in working with people with a personality disorder. Mentalization-based treatment (MBT) is an empirically–supported treatment for people with borderline personality disorder. It offers positive outcomes for people with complex and multifaceted presentations and high comorbidities.

Two keynote addresses from a leading international expert in the area of personality disorder, Professor Anthony Bateman, will consider how the MBT model has evolved and how it conceptualises and treats the complexities associated with borderline, antisocial and other personality disorders. It is anticipated that the conference will discuss consumer experience of receiving MBT treatment and will showcase how the treatment is being taken up across Victoria and nationwide in a variety of settings.

For attendees who may be less familiar with the MBT model, Spectrum will host Professor Bateman in providing in-depth training in MBT, Structured Clinical Management which is a Common Factors Treatment model that he developed. Professor Bateman will also present a separate post-conference workshop covering the diagnosis and treatment of antisocial personality disorder.
