All faculty members are credentialed as Balint Group Leaders by the American Balint Society.
Each online group combines a proven format with unique elements - a different mix of members and faculty each time. This allows for deepened learning through participating in one group after another.
The leaders of the group will set the dates and time of meetings, which will be noted in the event registration. The meetings themselves will occur on Zoom and invitations will be sent after your registration is complete.
Balint Online Groups:
The American Balint Society is an international leader in providing virtual Balint groups. When pandemic concerns dictated the stopping of in-person groups in many countries, the ABS provided tutorials on best practices in moving groups to an online format, attracting leaders from many countries and around the nation,
If cancelled by the ABS or hosts due to insufficient registrants, those registered will receive their money back. Otherwise, no return of fee is possible, including in the event of registrant's partial attendance or inability to complete the sequence of sessions.
Balint work can stir strong emotions. If the registrant is at an unusually stressful period in their life, we may recommend they sign up at another time. Contact the faculty of the group you are interested in if you are unsure.
Because the success of the group depends in part on cohesion, steady attendance matters. Our lives are busy, and missing a session may occasionally be unavoidable. We ask that registrants intend to attend all sessions of the group.
