Abstract

This paper outlines the organisation of a new project that aims to develop a model for adapting mentalization-based treatment (MBT) for therapeutic work with couples (MBT-CT), where one or both partners present with personality problems which may be contributing to their relationship difficulties. Describing how the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (TCCR) has developed this project and how a therapeutic model is beginning to emerge from the work, the paper focuses on the rationale and specifics of getting the project off the ground and some of the emerging clinical issues. It does not include clinical illustrations.
