Consultation Groups in Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy (MERIT)
2023 Dates: TBA
Time: 8.00am - 10.00am
Metacognitive Reflection and Insight Therapy (MERIT) is a form of integrative individual psychotherapy that seeks to assist adults diagnosed with psychosis to make sense and meaning of the challenges and possibilities in their lives and to find ways to manage these and direct their own recovery. Building from advances in both cognitive and interpersonal research, MERIT seeks to expand the boundaries of cognitive-behavioural, personal centered and psychodynamic approaches to treatment by focusing on how persons make sense of their experiences of their own purposes and place in the world allowing the development of a sense of belonging to our larger communities. In contrast to other approaches, MERIT focuses on core processes that should be present in a given session, rather than a predetermined curriculum. This allows for a therapy to be truly tailored to meet the needs of unique individuals in real world clinics while also unlocking therapists’ unique potential for creativity as they seek to jointly make meaning with the person diagnosed with psychosis. Over these four sessions, The facilitator will provide group consultation on the implementation of the approach allowing participants to think about how to integrate this approach into their practice. Psychology registrars may be able to count the time toward their supervision requirements. Read more....

Metacognitive Interpersonal Therapy for personality disorders: procedures, experiential techniques and the therapy relationship.
Metacognitive Interpersonal Therapy (MIT) for personality disorder 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 conclusion of treatment. MIT adopts a series of techniques in order to deal with symptoms, promote awareness of maladaptive interpersonal schemas, change them and promote a healthier and richer social functioning. This is delivered within a structured framework. MIT is unique, 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 patterns and increasing metacognition, that is the capacity for thinking about self and others.
