Adaptive Mentalization-Based Integrative Treatment

A Guide for Teams to Develop Systems of Care

Dickon Bevington, Peter Fuggle, Liz Cracknell, and Peter Fonagy

  • Speaks to the worker's experience of how hard this work can be (written from position of having had unique access to nearly 2000 workers doing this work in iterative field trials, alongside experimental/academic and theory) meaning workers can trust that the material comes from lived experience and field-tested outcomes, rather than just theory
  • Respectful of a wide range of existing evidence based practices allowing for local adaptation and incremental change in teams, rather than requiring total step change. Creating an AMBIT framework of practice can support a wide range of existing evidence based practices to work better, rather than requiring workers to abandon existing (and valued) expertise
  • Lively and engaging style of writing. Explains complex ideas in simple language, using lively metaphors and memorable analogies, so readers can absorb subtle, nuanced and complicated ideas easily. Memorable phrases and images act as helpful aide memoires
