Norka Malberg, PsyD

Mentalization Based Treatment with
Children, Adolescents & their Families

Norka Malberg, PsyD trained at the Anna Freud Centre in London and obtained her clinical doctorate from University College London under the supervision of Dr. Peter Fonagy. Her thesis focused on clinical applications of attachment theory working with chronically ill adolescents. She is currently in private practice in New Haven, CT where she is an Assistant Clinical Professor at the Yale Child Study Center. Dr Malberg is a certified child psychoanalyst.

Dr Malberg is co-editor of The Anna Freudian Tradition, the first volume in Karnac’s Lines of Development Book Series. She is also co-editor of the Child and Adolescent Sections of the upcoming PDM-2 (Psychodynamic Diagnostic Manual). She is one of five authors of the upcoming title Time limited MBT-C, to be published by the American Psychological Association Press in 2017. She was recently featured as guest master clinician in the APA Video Series illustrating MBT techniques.   


This clinical presentation seeks to briefly introduce the audience to Mentalization Based Treatment (MBT) models and the clinical practices they inform in working with children, adolescents and families. Basic practice elements will be discussed and illustrated with video material as well as clinical process material to illustrate ways of assessing , formulating and intervening from this lens. MBT is a focused way of working clinically which can easily be integrated into existing clinical practice.
