Mentalizing, which involves the ability to take on multiple perspectives about one’s own thoughts and feelings and those of others, is seen as a fundamental process necessary in establishing secure attachments. The ability to mentalize is also a necessary capacity in the development of a therapeutic alliance and the collaborative exploration of core issues.
Central to the webinar is the therapist’s view of his or her role. Specific discussion will focus on what the therapist attends to in sessions, the nature of the therapist’s communications and the presenters’ view of movement away from the therapist as bringer of insight and toward the therapist as facilitator of collaborative thinking.
