The four-day Intensive course is designed to teach Balint group leadership technique primarily through experiential groups, supplemented by topic-focused small discussion groups and faculty panel discussions. Attendees will have ample time to present cases, practice leading a Balint group, and engage informally with other participants. Faculty-guided debriefings provide opportunities to receive feedback on participants’ practice sessions in a safe and supportive setting. Participants emerge from the course with a deeper understanding of Balint group leadership techniques and responsibilities and improved awareness of the method’s limitations and risks. This course is given a minimum of twice a year, and we will follow public health guidelines regarding COVID 19 to ensure a safe learning environment. Each offering has unique aspects because of the mix of faculty and the specific cases offered in the Balint groups themselves.
