Balint Inspired Group

A Balint group is a structured meeting where healthcare professionals, historically doctors, come together to discuss and reflect on their interactions with patients. Named after Michael Balint, a psychoanalyst who emphasized the emotional aspects of patient care, these sessions delve into the dynamics of the nurse/doctor-patient relationship, explore emotions evoked during clinical encounters, and uncover underlying assumptions or biases.
