Mentalization-Based Treatment for Adolescents (MBT-A)is a practical guide for child and adolescent mental health professionals to help enhance their knowledge, skills and practice.

The book focuses on describing MBT work with adolescents in a practical way that reflects everyday clinical practice. With chapters authored by international experts, it elucidates how to work within a mentalization-based framework with adolescents in individual, family and group settings. Following an initial theoretical orientation embedded in adolescent development, the second part of the book illuminates the MBT stance and technique when working with young people, as well as the supervisory structures employed to sustain the MBT-A therapist. The third part describes applications of MBT-A therapies to support adolescents with a range of presentations.

This book will appeal to therapists working with adolescents who wish to develop their expertise in MBT as well as other child and adolescent mental health professionals.

Reviews and Endorsements

"This book proposes a generic, atheoretical and potentially extremely helpful conceptual framework which is so simple and obvious that it is hard to understand why the clinical world of child and adolescent mental health services has been relatively slow in adopting it. The editors are to be warmly congratulated for providing a comprehensive introduction to a common language which may be readily adopted by clinicians, regardless of their orientation or primary training, by families attempting to provide the best support to young people regardless of the specific problem, by young people trying to find their way through their increasingly complex social network and by the broader systems of schools, communities and social institutions which are so evidently failing in mitigating depression and anxiety in our young people." - Peter Fonagy, OBE FMedSci FAcSS FBA PhD, Head of the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences at UCL; Chief Executive of the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families, London.
