We plan to offer this activity several times in the course of the year with different faculty and different meeting times to accommodate varied needs.
This Balint group will meet live by videoconference for eight sessions, giving participants the chance to learn about what gets in their way of having more meaningful relationships with patients and to discern authentic responses that will lessen those obstacles. The case-based focus on alternative formulations rather than problem-solving makes the Balint process applicable to myriad situations and allows meaningful connection among practitioners of different disciplines who experience the importance of treatment alliances.
Suitable for those in active practice, including physicians, psychologists, social workers, nurse practitioners and others. No prior Balint experience required.
