We are pleased to be able to offer a further Bristol study day this year

The study day, which will take place at Engineers House, Bristol, will be of interest to clinicians and trainees from a range of disciplines and backgrounds and working in a variety of settings.  The study day welcomes all who are interested in Balint, in leading Balint groups and/or supervising Balint leaders.

We will bring themes of inclusion and diversity into our introductory talk and the study day thinking how the society has changed with a wider range of clinicians and professionals now involved. 

The day will also focus on the usefulness of Balint as a form of reflective practice, the ongoing work of Balint, how we work as Balint leaders, with whom we are working, what they are bringing to the groups and how we think about all of this 

The introductory talk will be followed by participation in Balint groups with time and space for discussion

There will be groups suitable for everyone depending on their experience of Balint.

A classic or regular Balint group will be suitable for those with no previous experience of Balint

Leadership groups are for all those with some Balint group leadership experience and those working towards accreditation

Supervision groups will be appropriate for accredited leaders

We will also offer a specific ‘doctors in training' group with the aim of this group being to further understanding of the needs of medical students and doctors in their first few years of training as well as to encourage interest in Balint.

The event will be followed by the Balint society AGM 2023
