Attendance at a Course On Mentalisation at the Anna Freud Centre in London

I was fortunate enough to attend a course on Mentalisation Based Theory (MBT) at the Anna Freud center in London.

The course was given by Peter Fonagy and Anthony Bateman, the two originators of Mentalisation Theory. MBT is one of the more recent developments in the overall Attachment Theory area. Fonagy and Bateman are the authors of the seminal text on the subject. Handbook of Mentalizing in Mental Health Practice.

I will return to what I learned on the course at a later date.

However, this post is just to share some of the photos I took at centre. The center is a few doors away from where Anna, and indeed Sigmund himself, lived.

It was nice to be in a place with these kind of historical links

See the photos below.
