Mentalization is a mental and emotional processing capacity by which we interpret behavior (both our own and others) as being driven or motivated by underlying mental states. It is the ability to see the inside story (the thoughts, feelings, intentions, etc.) that motivates people’s actions. This group will provide family members with an opportunity to develop greater mentalizing skills while also offering a supportive experience connecting families within the PCH community. The group is facilitated by Dr. Penelope Facher who is part of the Mentalization Based Treatment Program at PCH, where she leads mentalization groups with clients as well as providing individual therapy, family therapy, and consultation.
