Newcastle 2019 Two day Balint event including Leadership development groups, Balint Psychodrama group and ordinary Balint groups

 Registration is closed for this event
This non-residential two day event will be like a Balint 'weekend' but in the working week. It is open to everyone interested in Balint, with all levels of experience. You will be expected to come to both days.


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

Leadership development group for anyone who is currently leading a group. The work is experiential and can count towards accreditation.  

Balint Psychodrama group  Psychodrama stems from the partnership of two practices: the classic Balint group on the one hand and psychoanalytic Psychodrama on the other.  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. This group will be facilitated by Dr Jean-Pierre Bachmann, psychiatrist and psychotherapist in Geneva. Psychoanalyst and Balint leader. Member of the Association Internationale du Psychodrame Balint Paris and the Swiss Balint Society. Dr Esti Rimmer Psychoanalytic psychotherapist and clinical psychologist.  Balint Leader and supervisor. Newcastle upon Tyne.

Dinner on Thursday evening is included and will be in a restaurant by the beach.  There will be time to walk, swim if you are feeling brave and relax before dinner. A coach will take you to the beach and bring you back to central Newcastle by 10pm.

This is a non-residential event so you need to make your own arrangements for.  There is plenty of accommodation near the venue in Newcastle and Gateshead.  There is plenty of free parking at the venue.

Cost £180 including lunches, dinner and coach on Thursday evening.  Student £20
