Editorial Reviews

Review


"This book is successful in presenting an interesting formulation and intervention."--Doody's


"Real world issues are tackled head on. It is always refreshing to read books written by people who obviously do a job the rest of us would recognize."--Psychological Medicine


"Anthony Bateman and Peter Fonagy successfully manage to simultaneously elaborate and consolidate their first book, Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality Disroder: Mentalization-based Treatment, in this newer volume. A self proclaimed "How to" guide, practitioners will find this companion book helpful in its pragmatic and structural approach to mentalization-based treatment. While much less theory-oriented than the first book, it provides concise instructions on actual clinical therapy complete with real life examples and assessment guides."--Keeping in Touch

I wasn't aware this book focused on group therapy as a major aspect of treatment. It seems to have borrowed the combined treatment modality from Dialectical Behavior Therapy that combines groups with concurrent individual treatment. While I'm not opposed to this modality, I was looking for a book focused on individual therapy. In fact, I bought this book to find a more practical description of Mentalization-Based Therapy after reading Fonagy's textbook (Affect Regulation, Mentalization, and the Development of the Self) hoping his book would have been somewhat practical (it was extremely interesting, and probably the best review of developmental literature I've seen, but all theoretical). These books need a better description on the blurb or on Amazon! Anyway, I didn't finish the book (yet) because I had just left a position doing group (and individual) therapy, and was moving into a position doing solely individual therapy. In the interim, I saw a couple videos of Bateman doing MBT and had mixed feelings about the practical application of MBT. I think the theory is great, but in practice this translates to the therapist spending a lot of time, energy and focus on helping dysregulated patients maintain a moderated level of affect during therapy in order to maintain mentalization ability. Mentalization abilities are self-reflection and empathy-based ability to reflect on another persons state of mind and intentions (related to theory of mind). MBT theorizes this is the root of affect regulation, and we all know mentalization decreases as affect becomes dysregulated. Thus the therapist aims to help the client regulate affect to increase mentalization until the client can regulate their own affect.Read more ›

I feel like it's written more for academics and therapists. It would have been nice if it was written also for the patient, but overall it's a good book
