  1. Psychotherapy for Borderline Personality Disorder: Mentalization Based Treatment.Anthony Bateman & Peter Fonagy - 2004 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Borderline Personality disorder is a severe personality dysfunction characterized by behavioural features such as impulsivity, identity disturbance, suicidal behaviour, emptiness, and intense and unstable relationships. Approximately 2% of the population are thought to meet the criteria for BPD. The authors of this volume - Anthony Bateman and Peter Fonagy - have developed a psychoanalytically oriented treatment to BPD known as mentalization treatment. With randomised controlled trials having shown this method to be effective, this book presents the first account of mentalization (...)

    Bifocalism is in the eye of the beholder: Social learning as a developmental response to the accuracy of others' mentalizing.Chloe Campbell & Peter Fonagy - 2022 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 45:e254.
    This commentary argues the case for developmental psychopathology in understanding social learning. Informed by work on “epistemic disruption,” we have described difficulties with social learning associated with many forms of psychopathology. Epistemic disruption manifests in an inability to move between innovation and conformity, and arises from poor mentalizing, which generates difficulties in identifying social cues that trigger the correct stance.

    Mentalization-Based Treatment for Borderline Personality Disorder: A Practical Guide.Anthony Bateman & Peter Fonagy - 2006 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Mentalizing - the ability to understand oneself and others by inferring the mental states that lie behind overt behavior - develops during childhood within the context of a secure attachment relationship. It is crucial to self-regulation and constructive, intimate relationships. Failure to retain mentalizing, particularly in the midst of emotional interactions, is a core problem in borderline personality disorder and results in severe emotional fluctuations, impulsivity, and vulnerability to interpersonal and social interactions. Mentalization-based treatment for borderline personality disorder is a (...)

    There must be more to development of mindreading and metacognition than passing false belief tasks.Mikolaj Hernik, Pasco Fearon & Peter Fonagy - 2009 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 32 (2):147-148.
    We argue that while it is a valuable contribution, Carruthers' model may be too restrictive to elaborate our understanding of the development of mindreading and metacognition, or to enrich our knowledge of individual differences and psychopathology. To illustrate, we describe pertinent examples where there may be a critical interplay between primitive social-cognitive processes and emerging self-attributions.

    Maternal and Child Sexual Abuse History: An Intergenerational Exploration of Children’s Adjustment and Maternal Trauma-Reflective Functioning.Jessica L. Borelli, Chloe Cohen, Corey Pettit, Lina Normandin, Mary Target, Peter Fonagy & Karin Ensink - 2019 - Frontiers in Psychology 10.
    Objective: The aim of the current study was to investigate associations, unique and interactive, between mothers’ and children’s histories of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) and children’s psychiatric outcomes using an intergenerational perspective. Further, we were particularly interested in examining whether maternal reflective functioning about their own trauma (T-RF) was associated with lower likelihood of children’s abuse exposure (among children of CSA-exposed mothers). Method: One hundred and eleven children (Mage= 9.53 years; 43 sexual abuse victims) and their mothers (Mage= 37.99; 63 (...)

    Another step closer to measuring the ghosts in the nursery: preliminary validation of the Trauma Reflective Functioning Scale.Karin Ensink, Nicolas Berthelot, Odette Bernazzani, Lina Normandin & Peter Fonagy - 2014 - Frontiers in Psychology 5:115791.
    The aim of this study was to examine preliminary evidence of the validity of the Trauma Reflective Functioning Scale and to investigate reflective functioning and attachment in pregnant women with histories of trauma, with a particular focus on the capacity to mentalize regarding trauma and its implications for adaptation to pregnancy and couple functioning. The Adult Attachment Interview was used to assess attachment, unresolved trauma and mentalization (measured as reflective function; RF) regarding relationships with attachment figures (RF-G) and trauma (RF-T) (...)

  8. Trust me! Parental embodied mentalizing predicts infant cognitive and language development in longitudinal follow-up.Dana Shai, Adi Laor Black, Rose Spencer, Michelle Sleed, Tessa Baradon, Tobias Nolte & Peter Fonagy - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    Children’s cognitive and language development is a central aspect of human development and has wide and long-standing impact. The parent-infant relationship is the chief arena for the infant to learn about the world. Studies reveal associations between quality of parental care and children’s cognitive and language development when the former is measured as maternal sensitivity. Nonetheless, the extent to which parental mentalizing – a parent’s understanding of the thoughts, feelings, and attitudes of a child, and presumed to underlie sensitivity – (...)

    Epistemic trust and unchanging personal narratives.Chloe Campbell & Peter Fonagy - 2023 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 46:e87.
    Focusing on imagination and the social context in the generation of conviction narratives, we propose that these elements are dynamically related to one another, and crucially that it is the nature of this relationship that determines individuals' level of epistemic openness and capacity to respond adaptively to update their narratives in a way that increases the possibility of more successful decision-making.

    On Caution and Courage in Psychoanalytic Epistemology.Peter Fonagy - 2012 - Philosophy, Psychiatry, and Psychology 19 (3):213-215.
    Michael Lacewing’s argument in this paper is impressive. His basic case is that research in social and clinical psychology threatens to undermine Hopkins’ (1988) well-known defense of psychoanalysis. This defense claims that psychoanalysis is an extension of, and as valid as, commonsense psychology. By questioning the reliability of commonsense psychological inferences, research in social and clinical psychology also challenges psychoanalytic validity. For, in extending commonsense psychology, psychoanalysis inherits its flaws. This is a fascinating contribution to arguments about psychoanalytic epistemology. Lacewing (...)

    The roots of social understanding in the attachment relationship: An elaboration on the constructionist theory.Peter Fonagy - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (1):105-106.
    It is argued that constructionist theory provides only a partial account of how secure attachment leads to better social understanding. In addition to cooperative parent-child relations, the more efficient arousal and affect regulation system of secure infants, and developmental moderators of the processes of imitation, may play a part in explaining the association and offer clues as to how effective social understanding is generally acquired.
