Event Description
Cultivating Understanding and Compassion Through Balint
The International Balint Federation (IBF) is composed of 28 societies around the globe which represent varied cultures, historical backgrounds, languages and healthcare systems. While we celebrate our diversity, we acknowledge that we have much to learn from each other. Particularly when we face challenging times, it may help us to examine how Balint Groups work and what gets in their way.  We will examine the ways Balint promotes the cultivation of understanding and compassion in our varied settings and experiences. We will accomplish this learning through paper presentations, workshops and rich fellowship. Please join us at The Colorado Chautauqua, a national historic landmark at the base of the Flatiron Mountains for:
  • Five (5) longitudinal Balint Group sessions.
  • Paper presentations, poster sessions and workshops.
  • Continuing education credit (APA and AAFP/AMA).
  • A rich program of cultural and nature activities for registrants and guests.
  • Opportunities for networking and relaxation in a beautiful environment.
