Mentalization involves the ability to perceive and understand thoughts and feelings in ourselves and in others in order to stabilize the sense of self and enhance emotions and relationships. In Mentalization-based therapy, developed by Peter Fonagy and Anthony Bateman, mentalization becomes the focus.  Mentalization-based therapy has been helpful in working with people facing a variety of challenges including trauma, borderline personality disorder, interpersonal difficulties, and eating disorders.
