Balint Response to COVID-19

Moving Your Balint Group Online

Over the past two months, Albert Lichtenstein, Don Nease and Lisa Buck provided several tutorials on how to convert Balint groups to an online format. While they are no longer offering tutorials, they do want to make the information widely available.

Balint groups provide a unique experience for clinicians to share their feelings of shame, helplessness, anger etc. that they have been trained to ignore and for which they have no avenue of expression. Group members often report a sense of relief and are buoyed by the experience of learning that they are not alone. The opportunity to bring out such forbidden feelings into the light of day in a protected and confidential environment facilitates the reduction of shame and thus the sense of aloneness that most clinicians experience in the emotionally demanding work of caring for patients.
