Online Balint Groups
Short-term On-Line Balint Groups to Address the COVID-19 Crisis
Given the restrictions and heightened emotions from the COVID- 19 pandemic the American Balint Society is offering free short-term on-line Balint groups. These groups will meet every other week for four sessions, and will be structured to have a check-in at the beginning, classic Balint, and a check-in at the end. In that way the group can facilitate connection, support, and use the Balint method.
Tuesdays at 7pm Eastern Beginning April 7th
