Upcoming Training


We will update 2020 events as soon as we have updated information.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic MBT trainings are moving to an online format. This new format is currently being trialled in the UK. The online format will be offered to Australian participants during Australian times in the not too distant future.

The new online format is thoughtfully designed and contains:

  • a theory section with multiple choice tests
  • videos with examples of mentalizing difficulties and therapeutic responses
  • therapeutic role-play videos
  • supervised small group work with other online participants
  • live discussions with the trainers

And other features designed to maximise learning

Further information about Australian trainings will be posted here as it becomes available. When bookings open an email will be sent out to MBTAA subscribers.
