Improved care and well-being through
clinical reflective practice for
doctors and other health professionals.
Balint groups help health care professionals (including GPs, specialists, nurses, psychotherapists, doctors in training, students, and anyone who has clinical contact with patients)
- recognise they are not alone in having challenging interactions with patients or clients
- develop increased understanding and empathy for patients or clients
- explore how feelings and thoughts affect the clinician-patient, and other therapeutic relationships
- expand their capacity and repertoire for handling difficult situations
