Abstract

Research has shown evidence of the capacity for mentalizing being compromised in individuals with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) whilst there is evidence of the positive effects of treatments that focus on repairing the mentalizing capacity in this group of patients, such as Mentalization-Based Treatment. As emotional regulation in close personal relationships is an area that is particularly impacted in individuals with BPD, this paper aims at exploring the therapeutic process in Mentalization-Based Treatment Group paying particular attention to how mentalization may be generated through this process. This is achieved through a review of the existing theoretical and research literature around this topic. This review aims to provide further knowledge to therapists and clinicians in the area and also to identify possible gaps in the literature and possibilities for further empirical studies.
