One of the speakers at the forthcoming Art of Mentalizing Conference – Marianne Verfaille – is the author of a book that explores the themes of mentalization within arts-based therapies.
Peter Fonagy – another conference speaker – said of Marianne’s book:
‘Art therapy is arguably the most fertile area of application for mentalization based techniques. This book is the first comprehensive introduction to this area and deserves to become a classic.’
The book – Mentalizing in Arts Therapies – was published by Karnac Books and you can read more about it here: https://karnacology.com/2016/02/12/mentalizing-in-arts-therapies-by-marianne-verfaille/
