Workshop 1 Ordinary Balint group  This is good experience for new comers; also for leaders to have an experience of being in a group themselves.

Workshop 2 Leadership development group  This group will be experiential and focus on the skills of leading a Balint group.  It is suitable for anyone who is currently leading a group.  The experience can count towards accreditation. 

Workshop 3 Balint Psychodrama group   Balint psychodrama stems from the partnership of two practices: the classic Balint group on the one hand and psychoanalytic Psychodrama on the other.  Jean Pierre Bachman, The Journal of the Balint Society, vol 43, 2015 p5.  It was developed in the 1970s in France by Ann Cain a psychoanalyst and psychodramatist in collaboration with Charles Brisset , a Balint group leader in Paris.  Balint psychodrama is not role play but aims to recreate real scenes that took place in actual consultations as described by the presenting doctor and re-enacted by the presenter and group members. Rather than telling a story about the patient, the interaction between the doctor and the patient is shown through the use of the body in action and movement which hopefully opens up new ways of reflecting about the case, allowing the more unconscious and non- verbal aspects of the relationship to emerge in the group.
