Mentalizing Family Violence Part 1: Conceptual Framework
Mentalizing Family Violence Part 2: Techniques and Interventions
Eia Asen and Peter Fonagy

We have written two companion papers that hopefully make sense when read together. The first article provides an overview of mentalization-based concepts and techniques when working with the seeming ‘mindlessness’ of intra-family violence. The second article describes various innovative and playful exercises and activities, aimed at fostering effective mentalizing and thereby reducing the risk of intra-family violence. These include the taking of ‘mental state snapshots’ and ‘selfies’ in sessions, as well the use of masks and ‘body-mind maps and scans.'
