While personality disorders are much less common than high prevalence disorders such as anxiety and depression, their treatment occupies a substantial part of both private and public mental health practice. There are two reasons for this. The first is that they involve deeply entrenched
thinking, relational and behavioural characteristics, which means that change is slow. The second is that personality disorders typically result in substantial functional impairment, which often flows through to others and the wider community. Personality disorders cannot be simply ignored.
Metacognitive interpersonal therapy for personality disorders (MIT-PD) is different from other approaches to treatment of personality disorder, in that it does not focus on specific symptoms or behaviour and therefore does not target specific personality disorders. Rather it targets the pervasive higher-order thinking, interpersonal and behavioural characteristics that can be found in all personality disorders. MIT-PD is based on a structured and manualized set of procedures aimed at guiding the clinicians' therapeutic engagement and treatment from the very first session to the treatment conclusion.
The starting point is collaborative case formulation, which is developed by identifying the maladaptive interpersonal schemas as appearing in the patients' autobiographical narratives. Once a shared formulation is established, the therapy works on metacognitive differentiation or critical distance from maladaptive interpersonal schemas and experiential access to the healthy self. Throughout therapy, there is a focus on prevention and repair of alliance ruptures, metacommunication in the therapeutic relationship, and behavioural experiments.
The course will contain both didactic and experiential components, including:
