Our London based study day returns to the Swiss Cottage Hotel.

This workshop will be of interest to those leading or thinking about leading Balint groups and Balint style case discussion groups who wish to examine and develop their leadership skills. We will explore some of the successes, difficulties and pitfalls in leading such groups in a variety of different settings using group discussion and experience of being in or observing some Balint group work during the day, and possibly short presentations of problems from groups participants are running.

The day will count towards Balint leadership accreditation
